FREE Badgers for Beginners course, Chatelherault
Join Scottish Badgers at Chatelherault Country Park, South Lanarkshire, on Saturday 17th September 2016 for a fun, free and informative day all about badgers! Learn about badgers and how they live, the threats they face and how to spot their field signs when you're out & about. We'll have a morning session in the Edwards Lab followed by an afternoon in the field looking for setts & signs.
Things to note: Booking is essential as places are limited. Suitable for complete beginners but those with some badger knowledge will also be very welcome. Tea/coffee/biscuits will be provided on the day but please bring a packed lunch or make use of the on-site cafe (leave room for cake!). As part of the event will be outdoors, please come dressed for the changeable Scottish weather. Please wear stout footwear and be aware that some of the outdoor session will be on uneven ground and slopes. This course is not suitable for children but do keep an eye on our newsletter (http://eepurl.com/b8wd3j) as we have lots planned for young cubs too!
This event is part of the 'Badgers in the Landscape - Community Building for Wildlife Conservation' project - a Scottish Badgers project based in South Lanarkshire, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage.
