Wildlife Geocaching in the Mersey Valley. Have fun learning how to use a GPS to seek out hidden wildlife caches. Don’t worry if you’ve never used one before we’ll show you how. The aim of this activity is to use your GPS to find hidden wildlife caches which will be located in the countryside of the Mersey Valley and also to log real wildlife sightings whilst you are searching for the caches. At the end of the activity you will understand how to record the locations of the wildlife you see and we will explain how you can help the Greater Manchester Local Record Centre to build up a picture of the wildlife in your area by sending your sightings to the GMLRC. The event is suitable for families. All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. If you have a smart phone and to prepare for the event download one of the following free apps. My Grid Ref (Android) or GB Grid Point (I-Phone).
If you would like to participate in this event, please let me know in advance; numbers will be confined to 12 – 15 people – so it’s important to book early.DaveGBishop@aol.com
