This month there’s a second chance to see glow worms (and to listen out for cuckoos and turtles doves) on an evening walk when Young Nature Watch meet on Saturday the 24th of July at 9.30 pm in the Martin Down Nature Reserve.
On Saturday, 3rd of July, Young Nature Watch held a wildflower survey in the Tisbury parish meadow (accessible from the Nadder Centre, beyond the skateboard rink). We learned to identify grassland flora and help monitor the diversity and prevalence of positive indicators of a pollinator-friendly meadow.
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).
