Introduction to Rocky Shore Ecology, Fairlie

Fairlie Village Hall, Main Road, Fairlie, KA29 0AB

The Where’s Wildlife in Ayrshire? Project is excited to be working in partnership with the Capturing our Coast Scotland (CoCoast) project to provide this informal 1 day workshop. No previous experience in ecology or wildlife recording is necessary – just a keen interest in nature and an enjoyment of seeing and identifying the wildlife around you.

Our rocky shores are very hostile habitats, the plants and animals that live on the shoreline need to cope with extreme conditions. This course aims to provide an introduction to the plants and animals

The course aims to allow people to become more familiar with Ayrshire’s rocky shore habitats and we hope to increase the number of people recording what they see when they visit our coastline. The course is suitable for people who have no prior knowledge of rocky shore ecology but are interested in building their knowledge.

On the day, we will start in the classroom in Fairlie Village Hall where we will talk about the key features of our rocky shore habitats, some of the common plants and animals we may encounter and their ecology. We will also talk about the importance of recording, what makes a good record and how to record your findings. We will then try out our new identification skills on Fairlie beach and build some plant records for the area.

Further details and booking are available at Eventbrite.
