Wigtown Walk and Talk Exploring the Coast

Share this event:
Event Date
January 27 @ 12:00 pm

The event has passed.

Help us shape the future of the 200 mile Solway Coast from Stranraer’s Loch Ryan to Gretna. Join us on a coastal walk and discussion.

Join Andrew Bielinski, renowned bird expert and manager of South of Scotland RSPB, for a walk around the breathtaking Crook of Baldoon reserve. With a backdrop to wild Saltmarsh and mudflats, it is home to a thriving birdlife, from Barnacle Geese, Shelducks, Whooper and Mute Swans. We will also be joined by Nick Coombey of the Solway First Partnership who will share his knowledge about the coast. This will be a perfect place to consider our relationship with the coast and marine environment.

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 species, habitats, sea and landscape along the Solway.

Future Visions Playtime

We will meet for the walk outside the County Buildings in Wigtown and travel together to the nature reserve. 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.
