Pushing up the Daisies 2020 – Leicestershire – two upcoming lectures on churchyard wildlife

29th January 2020

Every parish has an acre of land where both people and wildlife can find sanctuary. Steve Woodward has visited all Leics & Rutland churchyards, to find out which plants and animals live in them. Steve’s presentation covers a wide range of creatures, from Spiders to Celandines, from Mosses to Mining Bees, and from Peregrines to Polypodies! He is a keen photographer and particularly enjoys finding the small but fascinating creatures that others overlook – like the Bristly Millipede.

He is Editor of the local wildlife journal: Leicestershire & Rutland Recorder, also Joint County Recorder for Flowering Plants.

The lectures are as follows:

St Helen’s Heritage Project, South Street, Ashby de la Zouch, Leics, LE65 1AA. Monday 3rd Feb 2020. 7:30 pm. £3 incl refreshments.

Leics & Rutland Wildlife Trust (North-west Group), Ashby Methodist Chapel, Burton Road, Ashby de la Zouch, Leics, LE65 2LF. Friday 20th March 2020. 7:30 pm. £3 incl refreshments.
