We are really looking forward to seeing you all at the beach tomorrow. It is often cooler there than inland so take an extra layer. Shoes for exploring the rocky shore are a wise precaution against slips. The forecast is for sunshine (yay!) so sunscreen, hats and a water bottle at the ready. We'll meet in the playpark from 2pm and set off for the beach around 2.15pm. Catch us up if you come later (down to beach turn left).
During the afternoon you can hear from Janet Khan, Senior Scientist with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency about seaweeds, why they are important and even which ones you could eat!
The UK is home to a particularly high diversity of species, and is a special place for seaweeds. Unfortunately, seaweeds are not as popular as flowers, butterflies or birds, so fewer people make and submit observations of them so we'll complete a survey for the Big Seaweed Search too. ( More info herehttp://www.nhm.ac.uk/…/citizen-scie…/big-seaweed-search.html ) Come along and put your citizen scientist hat on for the afternoon!
