Subject: Nature has a wonderful way of utilising habitats to which it is suited. At HCFA an area previously infested with brambles was dug out and filled with water last summer. A few pond plants were introduced and the next minute it was teeming with wildlife – pond skaters, water nymphs, blood worms.
On the 9th of June HCFA will host a pond ecology workshop where Froglife UK will show how to develop pond habitats – and encourage more than just your most opportunistic of organisms. As well as discouraging those that tend to take over.
Guest speaker: Victoria Ogilvey, Froglife UK
Date: 9th June 2013
Time: 10:30am to 1pm
Venue: Faggs Road allotments, Feltham
Cost: £7.50 entrance fee
