We have added two new pages to our blog. One is all about the Great North Wood and the other page is about what you can do for wildlife and how you can report any sightings.
As many of you know Beckenham Place Park has seen a huge transformation over the last couple of years. One of these has been the old 'danger deep' pond or Stumps Hill Pond which thanks to funding from has had a whole new lease of life with boardwalks and some tree removal to make it less dark. Unfortunately, soon after it was finished an invasive plant called Azolla, a floating water fern and one of the UKs most invasive non-native aquatic species started taking over.
Having already successfully co-ordinated the nationwide ‘Toads on Roads’ project for 30 years and with the recent launch of their ‘Wildlife Tunnel Campaign’ for all amphibians, reptiles and small mammals, Froglife will be hosting a global webinar on ‘Wildlife Road Mortality on 10th March 2021’
Thank you for everyone who joined us at our quarterly meeting on Tuesday. It was great hearing all the updates and that despite the lockdown and Tier 4 we still managed to organise 95 events and engage over 500 people, all of course in line with Covid guidance!
It is with a heavy heart, that yet again we will have to postpone Nature’s Gym.
Happy Christmas from all at Natures Gym
