Eden Wild Goose Nature  

EWG Nature Logo colour
We are seeking to set up a new Eden Wild Goose Nature Group in the coming months,
with a view to exploring, caring for and appreciating nature in our locality.

We hope to draw together a cross section of people,
beginners or more experienced
with interest from bugs to birds, soil to water, art to science…
who would be keen to enjoy nature with others. 
here are many thoughts on how we might proceed
with the Eden Wild Goose Nature Group,
including learning to recognise birdsong, species identification,
nature walks and encouraging children and family involvement.
 

‘Wondering together’
Monday 10th February
10am-3pm

St Paul’s Holme Eden,
