Still a Few Places Left in the Coastal Restoration Workshop at RSPB Campfield Marsh!

There are still a few places left in the Coastal Restoration Workshop at RSPB Campfield Marsh on Saturday 2 March 2024!

Join us in this exciting project to conserve and enhance the Solway Coast, combining science and community involvement.

  • Share Your Views: We want to hear your opinion on the management of coastal habitats. Your insights are invaluable in shaping sustainable strategies for our coastlines.
  • Gather Tidal Data using the ‘Mini-Buoy’: Learn how to use this innovative tool to monitor tidal flows and environmental changes. Become a part of a growing community of citizen scientists contributing to meaningful coastal research.
  • Explore the CLEARCoasts Project: Discover more about this initiative aimed at understanding and protecting our coastal ecosystems.

The Mini Buoy, as outlined in Balke et al. (2021), is a lightweight and cost-effective device designed to float in water. It’s equipped with an acceleration data logger that monitors tidal indundation and current velocities (i.e. water levels and the speed of water flow). When placed in tidal areas, this provides essential data for ecological research and restoration planning. The simplicity and efficiency of the Mini Buoy makes it an invaluable tool for understanding coasts and wetlands, which is crucial to protecting these areas and planning effective conservation efforts. Anyone can learn to use it, making it a perfect tool for citizen scientists who want to contribute to environmental research.

Booking is essential and through Eventbrite
