Inner Forth - New Connections for Nature, History and People

About Inner Forth - New Connections for Nature, History and People

In 2014 the Inner Forth Landscape Initiative had just begun delivery of a four-year programme of projects, funded by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund. Its vision was an Inner Forth where local people and visitors value, protect and celebrate this unique landscape at the heart of Scotland. In that year FNH and IFLI worked together on a conference looking at encouraging more people to discover and understand the rich heritage of the Inner Forth. Since then 50 individual but inter-related projects have worked with local communities, volunteers and other organisations to conserve, enhance and promote its important natural and historic features for the future.

This year’s joint conference will celebrate the achievements of the Initiative, and report on just a few of these projects, which focused on both the natural and cultural heritage of the region. There will be something for everyone, whether you are fascinated by the area’s history, or passionate about its wildlife – or hopefully both. Conference sessions include ‘The Hunt for a Royal Dockyard at Higgin's Neuk’; ‘Green Roofs and Meadows’; ‘Investigating Zetland Park’; and ‘Habitat Restoration at Wester Moss’.

In addition to a full day’s programme from a wide range of wildlife and local history experts, organisations and community groups representing the cultural, historic and natural history of the area, there will be stalls located in the University Atrium where anyone on campus that day will be able to learn more, and find out how to get involved.

The two organisations are particularly keen to encourage volunteers involved with IFLI projects to join us and for students and young people to come along to find out more. People who have volunteered for IFLI projects will receive a concessionary rate of £9, and if you are a student volunteer it will be just £4.50. Student tickets (including under-18s) will cost just £9 for the day. Full price tickets are £18 for the day.

Cottrell Building, Stirling University.

To find out more about the conference and to download a booking form, you can visit either the FNH or IFLI websites above.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Inner Forth - New Connections for Nature, History and People are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
