Bioblitz at Cradley Churchyard.

Come and join us whatever your experience as we discover the wildlife of Cradley Churchyard. We will have nets, pooters and guides aplenty to record as many plants, fungi, insects, mammals, birds and lichens as we can in the two hours. You will help the church manage the wildlife in the future. Join us for whatever time you have, no need to book, all equipment provided. Meet at Cradley Church WR13 5LH on 5th June from 1 to 3pm. or 

The session will be led by Tim Kaye. Tim, Herefordshire Wildlife Trust and botanist, is director of Cultivating Learning and Nature CIC, in partnership with Hidden Herefordshire and the Biological Records Centre.

The date we have chosen coincides with Love your Burial Ground Week 3-11 June and Churches Count on Nature which is a joint initiative promoted by Caring for God’s Acre, the Church of England, the Church in Wales and A Rocha UK.

The bioblitz will be managed from this web-site page, so please monitor this notice for up to date news.
