‘Wildflowering’ for natural and social gain (CIEEM NW and National Wildflower Centre) – Liverpool

event on
22 May
2019

NWC is proud to be partnering with the north west of England section of CIEEM and Liverpool Hope University on this event to bring ecologists, landscape architects, community activists, and a range of people together for an interdisciplinary debate, and to experience one of the most stunning urban wildflower meadows in the country.

From 1pm, there will be a community pollinator count on Everton Park led by entomologists from Liverpool and Manchester. The meeting point for this is the Northumberland Terrace entrance of Everton Park, opposite Beacon CofE Primary and close to St George’s Church.

The seminar on the Creative Campus of Hope University (room CAP009) will start at 2.30pm with interventions from Dr Alison Millward (Birmingham University), Richard Scott, Network Rail, Mersey Forest, Artist Rebecca Chesney and cultural and environmental leaders from Liverpool and Manchester. The programme will be updated in coming days. Themes to be explored are public health, biodiversity net gain, culture – and the role of the Museums sector, and the potential for seed as natural capital.

From 4.30pm there will be a walk / tour of the wildflower meadow in Everton Park with refreshments outdoors (weather-permitting).

Register your place via Eventbrite.   The walk / tour is free.  Seminar costs £4.

 

This is an official UK Urban Ecology Forum event.  Thanks to the Friends of Everton Park and LIverpool City Council
