Event Info

As part of the DVLP’s on-going partnership with Sorby Natural History Society we are trying to build up a clearer picture of the biodiversity on a number of key sites around the Dearne Valley, including post industrial sites . Many brownfield sites can be deceiving to the eye and actually hold a vast wealth of plant and animal diversity, many particularly notable for their invertebrate diversity but often under-recorded.

This is one site of a series the DVLP are focusing recording efforts on in partnership with SIG for 2017.

The group will be leading a special recording day on site, recording rare and unique invertebrates on this fantastic site. With more wildlife data we are able to better manage sites and educate more individuals about such rare and valuable biodiversity.

Tutors will be on hand throughout the visit to assist with survey and identification techniques. No previous experience required any skill level welcome. Just bring sensible outdoor clothing, any recording/field kit and a packed lunch.
