Thursday 13th December is the date for our second Christmas social: the Christmas party! Our Providence Plantation Officer, Laura is kindly hosting it at her house. We’ll be having lots of festive food, drinks, music and games. Everyone is welcome, so bring your friends!
On Sunday 9th December we will be heading to Providence Platation for a nature walk guided by experts from the Bristol Naturalist Society. This will be a great opportunity for you to get to our regular woodland a bit better and to learn what sort of flora and fauna you can look out for on our trips there.
On the weekend of the 24th-25th November we will be going to Brownsea Island in Dorset. This will be our first residential trip of the year and a first for Conservation Group, as we have never been there before. We will be working with the National Trust who run most of the island. We will be leaving Bristol early on Saturday morning, staying overnigh before returning late on Sunday evening. The trip will cost approximately £30, however, this depends on numbers, so may change.
If you are interested in coming on this trip, please email Lucy by 7pm Friday 19th October. Please register you interest even if you are not completely sure you can come yet, as we need an idea of numbers. Also, if you would like to come and have a car and would be willing to drive (it is about a 2 hour drive), please let Lucy know (you will be reimbursed for fuel).
On Sunday 28th October we will going on a trip to Browne’s Folly to help the Avon Wildlife Trust with some conservation work. This is sure to be a great day, and will be a fantastic chance to learn about conservation from the experts. There will be a £3 cost for this trip, which you can bring along on the day.
If you couldn’t make it to the first Taster Trip and still want to see how we roll, come along on Sunday 14th October for a great day of conservation work at Providence Plantation, a reserve in Long Ashton owned by the University and managed by us. If you came on the first Taster Trip, but enjoyed it so much that you can’t wait to do some more conservation, you’re welcome to come along again! This trip is open to non-members as well as members, so if you’re not sure if you want to join yet, this will be a great way to help you make up your mind, and wonderful day out with some great people.
If you would like to attend this trip, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 7pm on Wednesday 10th October.
