Help us create a butterfly habitat!
Join us every second Saturday in each month 10-12
We meet at Riverside Driveby the footpath to Teddington Lock
We are cutting back encroaching scrub to maintain sheltered open grassland areas and open woodland which are attractive to butterfly’s, and also maintaining some of the small footpaths through the scrub that are in danger of being overgrown. Areas where this is necessary have been identified by local naturalists and the Council’s ecology officer.
Time: 10– 12.00 (or as long as you can stay)
Are children welcome but need to be accompanied by an adult – please bring their own gloves as we only have adult sized gloves!
If you got gloves, secateurs, saws and gloves please bring them and wear working clothes including strong and water prof footwear.
