Community Projects

Northumbrian Earth is involved in a variety of community activities to help make the fascinating geodiversity of Northumberland and the Borders accessible to all. Community events will be publicised here when they are set up.

 

Geodiversity Action Plan Walks

In 2010 Northumbrian Earth delivered a series of walks to celebrate the launch of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Geodiversity Action Plan. These well received walks were funded by the Northumberland Coast AONB, with the aim of publicising the excellent work in the Geodiversity Action plan. They also initiated work to interpret the geology for both visitors and locals.

    Northumberland Coast Rocks!

    This project, which was completed during 2015 organised by the Howick Heritage Group and supported with HLF funding, delivered a book, some educational work with a local first and middle school and a series of walks and talks. In this section of geo-diversity resources you can have a look at the presentation given for the walks and talks as well as much of the material which was used in the educational work including lesson plans, activities and exercises.  There is also a handy guide to fossils to be found on the beach at Seahouses (and elsewhere on the coast).

Testimonials

  • "Ian is an ethusiastic geologist and if you go on enough of his walks you soon will be too! Although I have visited the Northumberland Coast many times before, learning about its geology allowed me to see it from a very different perspective. Ian was an enagaging and entertaining guide and as a result of his walk I was able to understand more about this fascinating area."
