THIS TUESDAY - TALES FROM THE ARCTIC - 7.30 KINGTON PRIMARY SCHOOL

Organised by the Kington branch of Herefordshire Wildlife Trust 

Tales of the Arctic

   
   

Tuesday 31st October, 7.30 pm; Kington Primary School.

With Glenn Morris, F.R.G.S. (Sculptor and Environmentalist)

Glenn has travelled extensively in the Arctic over the last 20 years, living and hunting with the Inuit peoples of Greenland and Arctic Canada as well as retracing the historic journeys of some of the early explorers such as Nansen, Peary and Rasmussen. In later years he led the ‘Arctic Voice’ project, an environmental initiative that involved a 3,000 mile dog sledge and kayak journey through Canada’s Northwest Passage.

Time spent in the Arctic has given him a deep insight into the problems facing this region of the planet as well as some wonderful wildlife encounters.

Our next 'working' meeting will be Tuesday 1st of August, our first 'monitoring' meeting will be Friday 25th of August.

If you are interested in joining this volunteers group please contact brilleyandbordersenvironment@gmail.com

Join Friends of Brilley Green Dingle !

FRIENDS OF BRILLEY GREEN DINGLE

ARE YOU INTERESTED ??

In case you missed this announcement last week at the Brilley fete.

Brilley And Borders Environment have organised in partnership with Herefordshire Wildlife Trust the set-up of a new group of volunteers to

  1. Help with the practical management and care for the Brilley Green Dingle AND
  2. Become involved with monitoring and getting to know the wildlife, aquatic life in Millhalf Brook, evolution of plants and trees in the Dingle

 

This is a unique opportunity for anyone who uses and loves the Dingle already to help it to flourish and for anyone who has not ventured there to get to know it from the inside out !

We hope to have volunteer sessions both practical and monitoring This Month. So if you are interested and not on the contact list yet please email brilleyandbordersenvironment@gmail.com or phone 01497 831743. There will be a 1 page form to fill in for each volunteer to be properly insured and a few pages with more information on what volunteering means. This information will be sent out to you on contact. 

 

NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE REQUIRED !
