Join us on a walk or a street stall

Come and find out more about the natural history of the area on a walk with a local naturalist. We’ll be discovering what birds, animals, trees, plants and insects make this area special. As soon as conditions allow we shall run a Natural History walk of the area under threat. We’re also hoping to run some street stalls in August and September. If you can help us, let us know.
