Us volunteers at ' Saltburn Friends of the Valley' are pretty excited. We hope you will be too!
The wonderful Tees Valley Wildlife Trust will be running a one day event at the woodlands centre, aptly named 'Saltburn Mammal Workshop'.
This is workshop is for people adults and children alike who would like to know more about the smaller mammals found in saltburn. It will give you an opportunity to learn how to record sightings of the these wonderful creatures, but also spot the field signs of their presence.
The workshop commences at 9am at woodlands centre, Saturday 24th September 2016, and will run until 15:30. The Wildlife trust recommends you book your place as there are limited places. There is a charge of £2, to reserve a place call: 01287 636382 alternatively email:
The workshop will begin by checking the survey traps, which will have been set the night before by a mammal expert. This means hopefully seeing some of our smaller inhabitants at close quarters. Showing you how to handle the animals carefully and safely before releasing them back into the wild.
The workshop will be a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities, and is funded by the 'Where the Wild Things Were' project funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and Northumbrian Water. As part of this important project you will be asked to help monitor the smaller mammals in Saltburn, over the next few months. This will give valuable information regarding local wildlife.
The trust are hoping to follow up this workshop with a series of follow up activities.
So if this for you, or you know someone who would enjoy this event why not book them on the workshop.
