As part of our All our Stories project with the Heritage Lottery Fund we have organised a series of free natural history walks. This first of those, a Wild Food Forage with local naturalist Steve England was today. We trekked across the estate in search of all things edible and helped ourselves to a few titbits along the way. We even ATE some of the historic avenue of lime trees!
Steve was a great knowledgeable guide and everyone who came along was thoroughly engaged. Here is a gallery of a few photos recording the event.
Thanks to Liz and Extraverte Community Projects we now have a full list of all that was found during the Kings Weston Bioblitz. You can download your own copy from here: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=620BA4062B4BA348%212066&authkey=%21AEmNlKf9Qn823Os
This is really the starting point for us now and we want to use this information in whatever way we can to improve people’s awareness of the natural history of the estate. The web site will be one way, but we are running a series of free nature walks this summer and a bulb-planting session in September. So don;t miss out and get in touch if you’d like to find out more.
