Dune Action Day with Environmental Facilitators!

ImageAs part of the Environmental Facilitators programme http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/environment/EnvironmentalFacilitators/ we spent some time on the West Sands dunes last Wednesday. We were helping Fife Coast and Countryside Trust with their Dune rehabilitation programme and took part in one of their monthly ‘Dune Action Days’. We spent the hour in the sunshine removing invasive species and helping to stabilise the dunes.

This activity, which sits in the ‘Community Investment’ section of the programme is one of many exciting workshops and talks in the programme. For more information or to get involved contact eImagenvironment@st-andrews.ac.uk

The next Dune Action Day will run on 16th August and we will be there from 12noon to 1pm. Hopefully it will be just as sunny as this week!

See you there!

This week we welcome a new addition to the Environment Team as Sarah Duley starts her year as the Sustainability Officer.

Lucy has been a huge asset to the Environment Team and we wish her all the best in the future!

Sarah will be focusing on outreach, engagement and communication with and to staff and students, as well as supporting University sustainability initiatives like Transition. She will also be supporting the other three members of the Environment Team; Roddy Yarr, David Stutchfield and Barbara Aitken on thier exciting projects, including things like the Environmental Faciliators Network, recycling schemes and publicising the new energy monitoring system!
