3rd July: Special Event this Saturday
Saturday 5th July, 1.30pm - 4.00pm
Return to Sender: An Arts and Ecology Project
Litter Pick on Lindisfarne NNR
This Saturday, Reserve staff along with artists Sally and Adam are looking to recruit as many people as possible to take part in a litter picking event on Lindisfarne NNR. This is part of a project which serves a dual purpose - cleaning up the environment and creating art! Sally Madge and Adam Phillips are working with Natural England, Berwick Film Festival and Berwick Museum to develop this project.
NNR staff regularly carry out litter picks to protect the wildlife of the NNR, as birds and seals can get caught in netting and rope. Birds and marine wildlife also eat smaller pieces of litter which is very harmful. Please come to the event on Saturday to help us keep the beautiful shores of Lindisfarne clean and safe.
The Return to Sender project will provide further help with keeping our shores clean, with follow-up events in August to turn the collected litter into art displayed at Berwick Museum.
Meet at Holy Island main car park, grid ref: NU126423. There will be a walk of about a mile across the dunes to Coves Haven where the event will begin.
We hope to see you there!
