Open Days in 2014

We will be opening up our Nature Reserve the last Saturday of every month from this April to October.  We are also aiming to include special events most months.  These are the provisional plans:

  • May 31st- Teddy bear’s picnic
  • June 28th – TBA
  • July 26th – Creepy Crawlies day (bug collecting etc)
  • August 30th – a tree survey, to learn about the different trees in the nature reserve and map them out
  • September 27th – looking at container gardening and hopefully a new irrigation system for the raised beds
  • October 25th – building bird boxes ready for 2015

Recent Committee Meeting

On Thursday, 27th March we (the committee of the Friends of Dacres Wood Nature Reserve) had our first meeting of the year. We had a great discussion over our plans for 2014 and events for the rest of the year.

And so we are happy to announce that our first open day for this year is April 26th. Stay tuned for more information.
