Breakfasting with our woodland wildlife
Updated: Aug 15, 2022
Our Breakfast and Biodiversity in early July was a fabulous event! It was half a day planned for adults and older children, run by Julie Lloyd Evans of Learning Without Walls and Greener Padbury's Robert Manasse.
Twelve people met in the woods to release and study the moths in the trap, collect and study insects from throughout the woodland, ground and field grasses, help us begin to survey the biodiversity and also enjoy a wonderful selection of home baked goodies for breakfast and then elevenses together!
We plan to run a short series of similar events soon.
‘What an enriching experience to learn more and observe the beauty of the biodiversity around us.’
‘I had a great time today … such a fantastic setup and learning experience for both children and adults. So many creative activities. I feel very fortunate to have this so close to home.’
‘A fascinating few hours learning about the beauty and wonder of nature on our doorstep. From the intriguing world of moths to the minute detail of insect identification; we enjoyed a leisurely swing in a hammock under the trees and a scrumptious breakfast … It was great to welcome people of all ages and backgrounds. I was able to learn something new from each person and every activity. I truly hope we can make this a regular fixture in our village.’
