Events

Hello all,

The forumn for the south west is a little quite so I thought that it would be useful to have a dedicated topic where events, surveys and training could be publicised.

Please add any events which you are either running, involved in or know of around the South West.

Cheers Trudy

Stroud Festival of Nature 2012

iSpot will be in attendance at the stoud festival of nature, demonstarting the site and searching for species to add to the observations list.

The fifth annual Stroud Festival of Nature takes place on Saturday 8
September from 11am until 6pm in the beautiful grounds of Stratford Park,
Stroud. It remains just one of two festival¹s of nature in the UK and
attracts visitors in excess of 2,500.

This is a free event where the public can not only learn about what is
happening in the countryside around them, but also engage in family friendly
nature based activities. Stratford Park provides a wonderful setting for the
event. As well as exploring the stalls and taking part in treasure hunts,
crafts, art, etc, visitors are encouraged to bring picnics, relax on the
lawns beneath the trees and explore the park¹s arboretum, woodland and
wilder areas.

This year over forty organisations, groups and individuals are taking part
in the festival, the highest number since the festival began.
There will also be a number of organisations and businesses promoting
sustainable energy. The Festival of Nature is also hosting the launch of
this year¹s Stroud Walking Festival, which then continues for the next three
weeks.
