Wildlife Workshops

 

We have recently enjoyed a series of Wildlife Workshops led by ecologist and former Derby City Council WildDerby Officer Beverley Rhodes on Meadows, Butterflies and Woodlands and one led by John Bland on Birds.  The Woodlands, Birds and Butterflies workshops included fascinating teaching at the Pavilion before we headed off on to the Nature Reserve for practical observation and learning.  For the Meadows workshop we went to visit Mercaston Marsh to see the amazing variety of wild flowers on that SSSI, to maybe get a glimpse of how our own nature reserve could develop if managed well to improve it as a wetland area.

NEXT WILDLIFE WORKSHOP:  Thursday 5 October 2017 - Fungi - 4-7pm at Chaddesden Wood with Beverley Rhodes, fungi expert
