Today I was teaching the first half of my Introduction to the Water of Leith summer class at the University of Edinburgh Office of Lifelong Learning. Tomorrow I will be continuing the course at the Water of Leith Visitor Centre with an afternoon walk through Colinton and Craiglockart Dells, my favourite part of the Water of Leith (and co-incidentally the closest part of the river to the Visitor Centre). There's a good group of 14 people taking the course this year and today went very well, though I was accused of being sentimental about rabbits!
Meanwhile, online booking for my autumn course on Environmental Writing has just opened here. It is an extended version of the course I taught last year and is now an 11 week Credit course, which means you can study it to gain credit if you want to go on to study a degree course at the University. You can also though study it without taking the Credit element of the course. The course will run on Tuesday mornings starting from 27 September. You can find out more and book here.
After tomorrow we're going away for a few days, so I won't be blogging now for about a week.
