International Year of Biodiversity

At the beginning of 2010, the International Year of Biodiversity, the Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust launched a major new biodiversity project which is made up of a number of smaller localised project strands, including:

  • Biodiversity Education Pack, Autumn/Winter 2010 - to be rolled out to all schools in Edinburgh & the Lothians
  • Practical Biodiversity Workshops – for schools and individuals, to help create homes for beasties in your garden (see events listings for details)
  • Wildflower Meadow creation - at a number of project sites
