We are going on a trip with the Avon Wildlife Trust on Sunday 4th March. Their trips are always great and they find really interesting and different activities for us to do. With coursework and strikes stressing everyone out, this is a great opportunity to get outside and away from Bristol for a day. Please email Heather by 7pm on Friday 2nd March if you are interested.
On Sunday 19th November Joe McSorley from the Avon Wildlife Trust will be leading us on a trip to Goblin Coombe just to the south west of Bristol.

On Sunday 25th October we will be joining the Avon Wildlife Trust to do some conservation work on one of their site; what and where exactly is yet to be decided. We will be meeting at the AWT offices on Jacob’s Wells Road at 9:45am and heading off on a minibus. We expect to be back in Bristol by about 4pm.
Update: Though only four of us managed to go on the trip we were able to help the AWT build a sheep-proof dry-stone wall. The beautiful summer weather provided and excellent opportunity to go on a butterfly tour of the hill-fort of Dolebury Warren and admire the impressive views. Once back in Bristol we headed to the Grain Barge to some much welcome food and drink by the river.
Our last trip of the academic year will be on Sunday 7th June to Dolebury Warren with the Avon Wildlife Trust. We will be helping them out with an ongoing dry stone walling project. This trip will be an excellent way to get outdoors after the stress of exam season (here’s wishing everyone the best of luck).
