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.
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.
If you’d like to know more, email email@example.com 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.
The Knowle Streamside Trust are running a self-guided nature trail at the above site from June 29th to July 13th. The idea is that you pick up a leaflet on site and follow instructions. Please see details on the poster by clicking the link below.
Have you wondered what has happened? The bunds were created last year to deter people from driving or camping in the park. This year they have been sprayed with a wildflower mixture in a matrix which will encourage their growth.
Thanks to all your efforts, over 30,000 Christmas cards have been collected at Braggs Funeral Directors in Knowle, which will result in them sponsoring at least 15 trees to be planted by the Woodland Trust.
