The Edinburgh Shoreline Project is delighted to offer the opportunity for one P6 or P7 class from a school in a coastal region of Edinburgh to visit RSPB Skinflats, near Falkirk.
This visit is an opportunity for pupils to discover more about the interconnected ecosystem of the Inner Forth and the Firth of Forth, and see habitats in the Inner Forth that are very different from the built up Edinburgh coastline. The Forth is a Special Protected Area for the internationally important populations of winter wading birds, and the mudflats and saltmarsh at Skinflats see visits from thousands of birds each winter.
Due to tide times, this opportunity is available on either Wednesday 9th or Thursday 10th October. It is available on a first come first served basis.
A letter has been emailed to each eligible school, but if this has not reached you or you would like more information please contact Charlotte Johnson, Edinburgh Shoreline Project Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to offer a similar visit to the Scottish Seabird Centre in East Lothian later this year.
This opportunity is kindly supported by Scottish Natural Heritage.
