The Urban Naturalist
|Starts:||29 Apr 2017|
|Ends:||29 Apr 2017|
|What is it:||Activity|
|Who is it for:||Adults|
Friendly, practical workshops run by leading naturalists. From wild food-foraging and composting to bird song and insect identification, explore biodiversity on our doorstep.
Join Amanda Bamford, Professor of Plant Sciences at the University of Manchester, to study biodiversity on our doorstep, as we look to identify the species living within the university grounds. We will be trialling the brand-new app, UMAPIT, exploring the idea of citizen science and contributing to our knowledge of the local flora and faunal communities found in the urban centre of Manchester.
There will also be an opportunity to carry out pond dipping, which will require advanced registration, as we must register all participants to get access to the area of the campus where the biodiversity garden is situated. Mobiles or tablets with the free app, UMAPIT, downloaded will also be beneficial but not essential. As aspects of this event will be hosted outside and will require a short amount of traveling between buildings, please take weather conditions into account.
If you wish to attend this special 2-hour event, please sign up to our Eventbrite by the 24th of April.
