The purpose of the walk is to engage the community with some of the species that are missing from the Brook due to climate change and other human factors. Once finished, ask questions about these species, find out why they went missing and what we can do to prevent further loss and improve the biodiversity in the Brook.
The self-guided nature walk is aimed at the whole community and will involve downloading a pack, which will include a work sheet and a map, from the Barnes Common website (or picking up a hard copy from the Vine Road Recreation Ground Pavilion). Follow the map along the Beverley Brook, looking for cut-outs of missing species along the way. Draw the missing species on the worksheet and when finished bring the completed worksheet to a staff member at the Pavilion at Vine Road Recreation Ground to collect to collect your prize.
This event is held as part of Great Big Green Week, a national week of community action from 10 to 18 June 2023 to tackle climate change and protect nature.
