Skye & Lochalsh Environment Forum
Skye & Lochalsh Environment Forum (SLEF) is a partnership open to anyone with an interest in the natural and cultural habitats of the area, based on our Local Biodiversity Action Plan.
If you feel that you, as an individual or organisation, belong with us, please contact the SLEF secretary and join in.
We hold periodic field and discussion meetings around the area. During the two-year period 2011-2013, an ambitious programme of community outreach activities was a great success. This will be extended if further funding can be obtained.
Members enjoy the diversity in bio-diversity!
SLEF event: Friday 6 February, Tigh na Sgire, Portree 7pm
Do children and young people
connect to nature enough?
A presentation by Terri Harrison, founder of Nature Nurture about the transformative effect that connecting with nature has on children and young people, including how to encourage ‘screenagers’ out-of-doors.
Followed by discussion about ‘Nature Deficit Disorder’, inspirational and informative video extracts, including from the internationally acclaimed film ‘Project Wild Thing’ and from Richard Louv (author of 'The Nature Principle' & 'Last Child in the Woods'), plus a chance to chat with SLEF Members.
