What's on in April
This month, on the Saturday the 16th of April, starting at 10 am, we will have a guided visit to Underhill Wood Nature Reserve.
This is a private reserve in East Knoyle, owned by a very enthusiastic nature lover, Jonathan Thomson. He takes part in a fantastic programme of nature education, the John Muir Conservation Award, but also has a group of home education students coming to learn about nature at his reserve.
The reserve is worth a visit for its lake, barn owl boxes, woodlands, bird of prey feeding stations, beehives and a lovely education building full of animal tracks and signs. But also, you will perhaps find an opportunity to get (or your young people) involved. Also, you will get a discounted copy of Jonathan's book, "How to rewild" with lots of useful tips! Don't miss this rare opportunity!
We are already fully booked but we have a reserve list; if you are not already on our mailing list, get in touch to subscribe and find out about our events before they are published on our website. If you cannot make to this event, worry not as there are other interesting things nearby also happening this month (some of us will be there too!), such as the Wiltshire Bird Open Day on the 24th at Langford Lakes.
Young Nature Watch (YNW) is a branch of the Tisbury and District Natural History Society (TNHS). Our first event was on July 2020.
YNW is free for under-21s! Young people always have priority at any of our activities but accompanying adults are required for under-12s. Whenever possible, we will aim to split attendants into three different groups:
- Families with young children
- Teenagers only
- Young-at-heart of all ages
For adults, annual membership for the TNHS (£10) or a £2 fee per event (for non-members) is due.
YNW activities are organised by Inés Lopez-Doriga and Izzy Fry (find out more about how it all started in Focus, p.27).
