Ecological Surveying Workshop

Date: Wednesday 16th September 10.00am – 3.30pm
This free training will focus on principles of ecological surveying, environmental appraisals, legislation and protected species. The afternoon will include a visit where we will conduct a site walkover survey along the Wendover Canal to put the morning’s learning into practice. Course limited to 8 people.

The workshop will be run by Alex Melson  – Inland Waterways Association Volunteer Co-ordinator.  Alex says: “I have been with IWA for over four years working as a volunteer coordinator for WRG. Since 2018 I have been offering environmental advice to canal restoration groups.  My background is in ecology and sustainability having studied at Keele University. Before my time with IWA I worked with Groundwork South in Denham looking after nature reserves and managing community projects in disadvantaged areas. I also spent 10 months volunteering with the Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust as a trainee reserves officer.”

We are hopeful that this can go ahead, even if social distances have to be observed.  It will be even more worthwhile surveying our own patch. To reserve a place email Jenny Brice
