Foxglove Bioblitz Weekend - 20th/21st July 2013

Friday, April 12th 2013

Foxglove Covert has a busy events calendar during the Spring and Summer this year.  We have guided walks, bird and moth identification mornings, Eco Club and the Bird Song Breakfast to name but a few.

To celebrate the incredible diversity of our countryside and wildlife we are holding a Bioblitz weekend. Through a range of guided activities and surveys, our naturalists and visitors will be racing to seek out and identify as many species as possible across the reserve. In addition the Foxglove Bodgers, our resident greenwood workers, have invited artisan craftsmen from across the region to demonstrate heritage countryside skills and encourage visitors to have a go themselves.

We are in need of volunteers to ensure the weekend runs smoothly and is a success.  Roles will include helping people to find their way around the site, running the refreshments stall in the Field Centre, car parking and leading or assisting with guided walks and some family events.  If you are able to give up any of your time to help us at all over the weekend we would be very grateful; please get in contact with Adam or Sophie if you can spare an hour or two.
