Shoresearch - Birling Gap training event (1/5/19) Wednesday, 1st May 2019 12:00 PM - 5:08 PM
The beach at Birling Gap is set at the base of the imposing Seven Sisters: it is one of the longest stretches of undeveloped coastline on England’s south coast. Birling Gap beach is a mix of mostly pebbles which give way to the occasional patch of sand. As the tide goes out rocky platforms are revealed which provide an array of rock pools to explore.The site is within theBeachy Head West Marine Conservation Zone.
This event will commence with a classroom session followed by a practical session on the beach.
Midday classroom session – approx. two hour training session designed as a ‘back to basics’ ID session with some guidelines on the survey techniques and general information on the importance of Shoresearch.
We will then take a short break for lunch and then walk down to the beach as the tide is retreating.
Places for this training event are limited, booking is essential. Priority will be given to regular, committed Shoresearch volunteers.
