Thought you all might like to know that Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust have chosen to run their moths and butterflies ID course among the wildflowers, woods and gardens of Hawkwood College, which shows how Stroud Community Agriculture is helping to steward the land organically and biodynamically there so well for wildlife and biodiversity. The neighbouring Hammonds farm fields the BDLT is trying to buy will be also farmed in wildlife-friendly ways.
The course learning to identify and record moths and butterflies with an expert is this Saturday, 11th July 10-1 at Hawkwood organised by Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.
