Nature Walks for All in May
We’ve three walks coming up this month – all connected with the wonderful natural environment in Warley Woods.
Saturday 12th May – a tree walk with Chris Shortis at 10am. Meet at the Pavilion. Chris is a local resident, but he is also our expert advisor on trees at Warley Woods. He wrote our Woodland Management Plan, does our safety surveys and offers us ideas about things like – giving our veteran beech a sugar boost. He may be an expert, but he communicates in a really accessible way and so whether you wanted to know the basics or some of the more technical stuff you won’t be disappointed. £2 per adult, children free

This is led by Liz Coleman, Warley Woods Trustee and RSPB volunteer (and professional teacher) and Steve Hodgkinson, Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust. The event is suitable for adults and teenagers. There is some classroom style learning in the morning (fun though) and then you go out for a walk to try out what you hope you have learnt. £5 per adult. Meet in the Padgham Room (meeting room) at the Pavilion.
Saturday 26th May – a dawn chorus walk, 5am (yes 5am) meet at the Pavilion to walk with Matt Hadlington, Warley Woods volunteer and Sandwell Ranger. May is the best time of the year for birdsong, so come and learn from Matt on his first event for the Trust. £2 adults, children free.
