The 2014 Survey Launch Event will be taking place at The Boathouse, Ellesmere on Saturday 15th March from 3.30pm—5.30pm.
If you are interested in your local landscape, you could help us to map habitats and key species in the field or in the Meres and Mosses office. No previous experience is necessary and all training will be provided.
You will meet like-minded people, explore the region and discover more about the Meres and Mosses area.

There will also be opportunities to help us carry out water vole surveys by canoe; basic canoe training will be provided as will the necessary survey training.
