RSPB: Waterloo and Crosby Coastal Park

This events involves a stroll around the four gardens and Crosby coastal park.

The area around Crosby beach and Crosby Marine Park stretches from Waterloo to the estuary of the River Alt at Hightown. The Coastal Park is currently home to the Iron men of Anthony Gormley’s Another Place.

The marine lake at Crosby is always of interest and the vast expanse of sandy beach provides resting and feeding locations for flocks of wading birds where the dunes shelter new arrivals.

The lakes and dunes have played host to a number of visitors over the years, including Long-Tailed Duck, Snow Bunting, Grey Phalarope, Lesser Scaup and Goldeneye.

*Meet at the corner of South Road and Marine Cresent in Crosby and wrap up warm!!*

RSPB: Hale Park and Pickerings Pasture Nature Reserve

This event will involve searching through Hale Park for migrants and finches, before heading down to the estuary coastal path. We will then be moving onto Pickerings Pasture Nature Reserve later on, where the Cafe will hopefully be open!

The walk is fairly easy, however the paths in the woodland and along the coast can be slightly tricky. Benches are sporadic at Hale and there are no facilities except for the Pub.

*Please dress appropriately as it can be chilly along the coast*

Wirral Wildlife: Heritage Walk

This tour will take you on an exploration of the industrial history of the former railway goods yard, and how this contributed to the wildlife biodiversity of the park. This will focus particularly on the brick-making and railway operations that shaped the park that stands today.

A short walk of approximately 600 metres, but there is so much to see in this short distance.

Tea and cakes will be provided at the end of the tour.

*The lower half of the park is disabled-accessible*

Car and bike parking is available on site and there are good public transport links available.

Have a Field Day

Enjoy your local green space and plan a picnic for Have a Field Day 2019.

In 1934, the first Playing Fields Day was held and in this time Fields in Trust have protected over 2,800 parks and green spaces. Now, on the first Saturday in July, they hold their annual Have a Field Day, championing local parks and green spaces.

Why not organise your own picnic, and connect with your local green space again? They’re amazing for your physical and mental health!

Clean Air Day: Liverpool

Air pollution is something which affects each and every one of us. Together, we can raise the profile of the effects of air pollution has on our health and what we can do about it.

Join us on Clean Air Day as we bring together stakeholders from Liverpool and the wider region to discuss how clinicians, members of the public and stakeholders can work together to improve the quality of the air we all breathe.


The event will be opened by the Mayor of Liverpool (Joe Anderson OBE) followed by a panel discussion including Professor Stephen Holgate (Royal College of Physicians’ special adviser on air quality), Larissa Lockwood (head of health and air quality at global action plan) and Colleen Martin (Assistant Director- Supporting Communities at Liverpool City Council).

The panel discussion will be followed by informal discussions between participants on the key actions we can all take. We’ll also be joined by members of the British Lung Foundation’s & Client Earth’s Clean Air Parents’ Network.

This event will seek to create a range of actions that together will help improve air quality in Liverpool.

*Light refreshments will be provided*
