Go Wild in Wellesley
This Autumn the Wellesley Woodlands are focussing on the importance of children and young people connecting with nature.
Local families are encouraged to ‘Go Wild in Wellesley’ – an opportunity to play outside, away from technology and reconnect with nature, whilst having fun!
Four ‘Go Wild in Wellesley’ challenge sheets will be available to download at the end of September and will encourage families to follow trails throughout the woodlands and provide additional information about nature, the environment and local history.
With information, tasks and challenges – everyone in the family can get involved and have fun together outdoors.
More information about ‘Go Wild in Wellesley’ and the downloadable forms are available at www.wellesleywoodlands.co.uk
Wellesley Woodland Improvement Group
Would you like to help us look after the woodlands? If so, there are lots of ways you can get involved.
The Wellesley Woodland Improvement Group (WWIG) meet every other Thursday and every third Saturday to carry out a variety of tasks to help improve the woodlands for both visitors and the natural environment.
The friendly group get together and undertake different tasks each session, from removing invasive species and preparing for events, to general habitat maintenance and tree clearance. All tools and training are provided.
For more information about how you can get involved in the Improvement Groups, visit www.wellesleywoodlands.co.uk
