A chance to explore Sedgley Beacon, and discover some of its geological and ecological importance

Meeting on site at the Beacon Tower at 19:00, we will be joined by Graham Worton (Keeper of Geology at Dudley Museum) and Ian Trueman (Professor of Plant Ecology, University of Wolverhampton). As experts in their respective fields Graham and Ian will be talking us through the geological and ecological importance of Sedgley Beacon and showing us some of the features and species which tell the story of its development over millions of years.

The event will also be a great opportunity to discuss the potential for developing projects at Sedgley Beacon which build on the recent work carried out by South Staffs Water, The Wildlife Trust and Dudley Council through the Nature Improvement Area funding, and how the projects identified in the Sedgley Beacon Management Plan can be realised.
