Learn new skills with the Environment Team

We know how stressful exams can be, so for four weeks after exams have finished (23 May-17 June) we have teamed up with MMU Futures to offer you a whole host of events and activities. The activities on offer provide you with the chance to enhance your skills so you can stand out in a crowded graduate job market, whilst giving something back to the community through volunteering.

Interested? Find out what’s on offer here:

There are six workshops in total. Click here to find out more.

Just Eat It – Film Screening and Talk

We all love food! As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. With that being said, we are still throwing away nearly 50% of it away in the rubbish bin!

Just Eat It is a documentary exploring the subject of food waste. Sign up here.

Bat Walk and Survey at Birley

Join us and the South Lancashire Bat Group for a guided walk around Birley and nearby Hulme to find out more about bats and to hopefully hear some of the amazing creatures.

This is a great way to spend a summer’s evening. Click here to find out more.

Birley Orchard Maintenance Workshop26750168_66414212.jpg

In October 2015, the Birley Community Orchard was planted. We’ll be pruning our lovely plum and cherry trees, weeding and installing maggot traps.

All equipment will be provided so come along and make a difference to the Birley community. Sign up here.

Recycling Centre Field Trip

Join us for a short trip to Longley Lane Materials Recovery Facility. The site tour will show you how recycling is separated and sorted for recycling, giving valuable insight into the fascinating, and often unseen, world of waste!

There are limited places on this trip so book early to avoid disappointment here. (Transport is provided)

Gardening Action DayP1000954

Did you know that John Dalton has a garden area? Come along to help us revamp and plant up the garden areas ready for the summer months. Gardening is great for the body and mind which makes it the perfect activity to do after the stress of exams.
