About Wildlife and Soils That Call Scotland Home

Ever thought about where your morning bowl of porridge comes from? Or which birds and wildlife make our farmland their home? With 75% of the UK's land used for agriculture, what happens on this land is vital for us and for wildlife. Come and meet scientists from the RSPB and James Hutton Institute to delve into the soils and wildlife of Scotland's farmland. Try your hand at birdcake making, potato sorting and soil sampling.

All ages.
