'Wildflowering' for natural and social gain | Grand Hall | Wednesday, 22. May 2019

NWC is proud to be partnering with CIEEM 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.
The seminar will start at 2.30pm with interventions from Dr Alison Millward, Richard Scott, 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).
From 12.30pm, there will be a community pollinator count on Everton Park led by entymologists from Liverpool and Manchester.
Thanks to the UK Urban Ecology Forum and the Friends of Everton Park
