Event Info

The Dearne ‘On the Verge’ Biodiversity Project aims to enhance biodiversity in Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham. The project aims to achieve this by increasing local understanding of the value of verges for biodiversity through practical conservation work and monitoring surveys of key indicator species (e.g. insects, plants etc.)

As part of this exciting and innovative project, we will be holding a series of FREE wildlife ID & recording workshops, led by ecologists from Baker Consultancy. These will provide volunteers with the basic skills and understanding to identify, monitor and record key bird & butterfly species associated with local verges in the Dearne.

The sessions will cover:

  • Identification help (Birds & Butterflies)
  • Survey Technique
  • Longer term monitoring (habitats etc.)

This is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about the project and how you can help. As well as to learn new skills in wildlife recording and monitoring all for FREE!
