Friends of Dacres Wood volunteers would like everyone in the community to know that our regular last Saturday of the month Open Days start in 2015 this Saturday, 28th March. It is an opportunity to look round the reserve, but also learn how you can help us – and Lewisham Nature – with their conservation work.
This Sunday there will also be a chance to visit the reserve under the expert guidance of Tom Moulton and Alona Sheridan, as part of a Nature Walk organised by Lewisham Nature. The walk will last about 2 hours, starting at Forest Hill station, and also visit Albion Millennium Green, Mayow Park and Home Park.
We’re planning to publish photos each week from a walk round the reserve by one of our volunteers, just to show what’s happening and when. The best view is perhaps of the whole length of the pond, from the north end, so let’s start with that, today, March 24th.
In Saturday, 26th July from 1-4pm, there is an open day in the Dacres Wood Nature Reserve.
Ema Felix, who runs a nature group for small children, will be helping the friends of Dacres Wood to run a creatures and critters day.
Come along for:
– pond dipping
– bug collecting
– tours of the reserve
As usual tea and coffee will be available.
See you soon…
Next Saturday (28th) from 1-4pm the nature reserve will be open. After such a successful open day last month, we look forward to seeing many of you here again this month.
On Saturday, 31st May 2014 we have our first ever Teddy Bear’s picnic. Come along and have a picnic with your favourite teddy, make a sculpture and help hunt for teddies! Please bring your teddy and a picnic.
Of course as usual, the nature reserve will be open for visits and light refreshment will be available to purchase in the field centre.
Just a super quick reminder, there is an open day next Saturday (26th) from 1pm-4pm. It would be a good opportunity to see the changes in the pond since the last open day.
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:
