THE POND IN KNOWLE PARK

The major works on the pond have now been completed.  It might still look rather murky, which is to be expected after way the bottom was stirred up.  We are assured that it will gradually clear, helped by the planting of marginal and floating plants over the next few months.  The bundles of sticks on the far side will help to filter water coming down the bank, to reduce the amount of silt entering the pond and keeping it clear.
The ducks are already very happy, I saw one taking nesting material into the duck house yesterday!

PLANS FOR A NEW FOREST OF ARDEN

The Council has outlined plans for the creation of a new forest in Solihull. 

The new forest, called Arden Forest, would create a diverse and continuous green corridor through the Borough of Solihull and the Meriden Gap.  It follows on from the Council’s Climate Change Prospectus and the ‘Planting Our Future’ campaign, which aims to see at least 250,000 trees planted in the borough over the next 10 years.

KNOWLE’S NATURAL ENVIRONMENT

Are you interested in our natural surroundings?  Do you have a little time to help it thrive? The Society’s Natural Environment Committee are very keen to boost its pool of volunteers so they can achieve their aims of enhancing Knowle and protecting our wildlife and plants.

This is not an onerous thing to take on, you just need to be available when it is convenient to you.  The more volunteers, the more that can be achieved.
