Waterside is not just a campus created for 21st century higher education: it’s also a place where wildlife is flourishing. That’s no accident. Ecologists from Environmental and Geographical Sciences played a role in planning the landscaping of Waterside Campus to make it as friendly for plants, birds, bees and other insects, and mammals such as our resident otters, foxes and hedgehogs. During this walk-and-talk Dr Janet Jackson and Prof. Jeff Ollerton will tell you about the wildlife which shares our campus and how, with the help of students and colleagues, they are monitoring the return of biodiversity to this former brownfield site.
We will meet by the footbridge by the Creative Hub at 12.30pm.
Stout trainers/walking boots/wellies are recommended and you may need sun cream or a raincoat!
Members of the public are welcome to join us for this event.
