Summer 2008 saw the launch of a new 18-month project to encourage local people to get out and about exploring their local woodlands. Participants will get an information pack and access to free learning days with local wildlife experts to find out about different species groups. Plants, birds, mammals, dragonflies, butterflies, beetles - this is YOUR chance to learn about the wildlife in and around your local woods and help by gathering valuable information about local wildlife.
