Upcoming event: #Manchester Festival of Nature, Heaton Park Sat 7th September

Disappointed that the City Council’s “Green and Blue Infrastructure” plan is delayed for the thousandth time? Drown your sorrows in a sea of greenery!!

Heaton Park23092013There’s a Manchester Festival of Nature being held at Heaton Park on Saturday 7th September. All are welcome and it’s FREE!

As well as the wildlife focussed family activities the Greater Manchester Local Record Centre will be running a series of ‘bioblitzes’ in the park as part of their ‘Grey to Green’ project. For those people who may not know what I’m talking about, a bioblitz is an event at which the participants attempt to identify as much wildlife as possible, on a particular site, over a limited period of time. If you’re interested in finding out more, have look at the following page:

Bioblitzes are great fun and to join in, participants do not need any experience. For more details contact either me (davegbishop@aol.com) or Matt Holker (matthew.holker@tameside.gov.uk) of the ‘Grey to Green’ team.

  1. There was an interesting letter in Monday’s, 2/9/13, MEN about the extremely poor state of Heaton Park. And how money from music events on the Park are not being put back in the Park.
