Moorlands and a changing climate – free talk and walk


27/06/2016

Moors for the Future Partnership is inviting people to join them for an informal talk and walk on 23 July in Marsden, West Yorkshire to find out about the effects of climate change on moorlands – and how we can monitor changes.

The event celebrates the launch of the Moors for the Future 'Buds, Berries and Leaves' moorland calendar survey. This will record the timings of seasonal events – such as the opening of leaves and flowers, in four moorland plants – to see if they are changing.

The event will feature:


* Short talks from varied speakers about citizen science, moorlands and climate change

* Stalls and displays from local groups

* Free light lunch (there is such a thing!)

* An optional walk on to the moor (bring suitable boots and clothing if you wish to join this)

All are welcome to attend this free event.

You can reserve your free place here.
