Peel Park and the Coppice Invertebrate Recording Day

26th July | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Book here.

Peel Park is the largest Local Nature Reserve in Lancashire and currently the subject of a Prospects Foundation project to protect and improve pollinator populations and their habitats.

Over 20 broad habitat have been recorded, including heathland, broadleaved, coniferous and mixed plantation, semi-natural woodland, dense and scattered scrub, acidic, neutral and marshy grasslands, flushes, standing and running water, heathland, hedges, ditches and bare ground. The number of flowering plants and ferns recorded on the site is over 300, of which more than 250 are native to Britain. This is in addition to over 120 mosses & liverworts. However, the site doesn’t appear to have been the subject of extensive invertebrate recording.

There are no facilities or shelter at this site. However, Accrington Town centre is within 20 minutes walk.

Please be aware that whilst we welcome invertebrate recorders of all experience levels, our recording days are not taught or guided sessions. (Check out our webinars/workshops here).

Events will be subject to cancellation if there is severe weather forecast.

Booking essential: Further details regarding meeting place etc. will be circulated before the day.
