Kippford/Rockcliffe Walk and Talk Exploring the Coast

Share this event:
Event Date
January 28 @ 12:00 pm

The event has passed.

Help us make the most of the 200 mile Solway Coast from Stranraer’s Loch Ryan to Gretna. Come on a coastal walk-and-talk. Shape the future.

Join Mary Smith, Engagement Ranger for Threave and Rockcliffe Marsh Nature Reserves and Clair McFarlan, Partnership Manager for the Solway First Partnership to explore the coastline from Kippford looking out over the sand to rough island and then back again via the coastal woodlands. (The walk and talk aims to stimulate and inspire discussions in the workshop after lunch).

We will meet for the walk outside the bus stop at Kippford.

As part of the ambitious Solway Coast and Marine Project (SCAMP) we would love to explore how we as local people and businesses, could benefit from investment in ‘natural capital’.. the unique habitats, sea and landscape along the Solway.

Future Visions Playtime

After the walk it is back indoors for a hot soup and a heat up; where we will talk, dream and share ideas about future options for our coast and marine environment.

What we’ll talk about:

  • What a healthy coast means to you
  • What you want for the future
  • What investment in the coast could mean for work, skills and business
  • How we might develop the coast with an eye on its long term care
  • What we risk for the next generation if we don’t act now

Please join us. Have your say. Shape the future.

Brought to you by Dumfries & Galloway Council Environment Team and the Solway Firth Partnership.
