Here's a special note from Jo:
I am looking at co-ordinating wildlife survey work on Leverhulme Park, Breightmet and Haslam Park, Deane.
By August 2013 both sites are to become Local Nature Reserves!! and it has been due to the fantastic support and time of volunteers that has enabled us over the last couple of years of the project to put together a list of wildlife on the park to support the designation, so thank you for all your help.
Over the next few months I would like to gather further data of wildlife to support the designations and, I'm inviting you to become involved.
Below is a list of possible surveys to be undertaken:-
· Phase one habitat surveys
· Tree identification
· Bird surveys
· Butterfly surveys
· Bat and amphibian surveys
I will be looking at leading a beginner's tree identification walk and follow-up workshops around tree identification as well as an introductory look at management planning. Please let me know if you would be interested in either of these opportunities.
If you are interested in getting involved, please can you let me know:
1) Which areas are you interested in?
2) Do you already have the skills to do the surveying and if so would you be happy to undertake the surveying in your own time?
3) Would some introductory training help to support you?
4) When is best for you? During week (am/pm), weekend (sat/sun)
