EYE Project: see the world through different eyes!

Can you remember your first wild moment? Perhaps it was catching sticklebacks in a stream or standing on the shoulder of a Cumbrian mountain. After that nothing looked the same. Something made you value the natural world.

This exciting Heritage Lottery-funded 3 year project aims to open up the world of wildlife to volunteers and promote wildlife recording in north-east England. It is a collaboration between the Great North Museum project and the Northumbria Natural History Society, drawing together amateur expertise with young people and volunteers throughout the Newcastle area. I am providing training workshops for the project in 2007.

The training is free and courses on offer this summer include small mammals, wild flower identification and a workshop on how to plan and run a guided wildlife walk for your local community - for dates and details call the project officer, Naomi Hewitt 0191 222 7868
