Plymouth scibar talk: Plymouth Woodland Project and the role of Citizen Science
  • The B-Bar, Barbican Theatre, Plymouth PL1 2NJ

Save event

Alison Smith runs the Plymouth Woodland Project, a citizen science project which aims to study the ecology and importance of urban woodland environments and collect data on the impact of climate change on these important environments. 

The Plymouth Woodland Project is a Citizen Science project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run by the School of Biological Sciences at Plymouth University. The project began in September 2013 and will run for two years.

The project's mission is to create a sustainable future for Plymouth's woodlands by involving schools and communities in monitoring local woodland ecology, providing a wealth of important data to woodland managers whilst also inspiring learning and exploration of the natural world.

About Plymouth scibar

Plymouth scibar is the Plymouth Branch of the British Science Association, whose aim is to encourage scientists and technologists to develop a dialogue with the public in a comfortable and accessible environment.

Scibars are NOT lectures or seminars - they ARE informal discussions for the non-scientist, the person who just wants to know more what is happening around them.

In many cases we will be discussing topics of current interest such as climate change, fish conservation, ageing, science and religion, the media’s relationship to science, alternative (non carbon) energies, nanotechnology, etc.

Plymouth scibar note

Attendance is free on the night but we suggest a contribution of £2 per person. 

The British Science Association is a voluntary organisation which relies on contributions from its audience to continue running events. All money received goes back into running similar projects in the city and wider South West region!
