Gressenhall Goes Wild - a day with a difference
Become a nature detective and search for Gressenhall’s wild side from the woods to the river this Bank Holiday Monday.
Find out more about the animals and insects that call Gressenhall home, and see what the birds are up to this spring with the RSPB. Discover the hidden side of Gressenhall Farm with the help of our nature watch cameras.
Venture out into Centenary Woods and search for Lee, our Skills for the Future Landscape Management Trainee, and the Landscape Conservation volunteers. Discover what they’ve been doing to make the woods more wildlife-friendly and see how they turn the wood into tools with their pole lathe and green wood working demonstrations.
Who says that there is no such thing as a free lunch? Find out what delicious things can be found growing wild in gardens and hedgerows with Debby from Pickled Lilly.
Inspired by the natural world, explore the striking images of local photographer Simon Litten. Simon has been passionate about the natural world since childhood and his photographs of hares, owls and deer are a stunning reminder of the beauty in Britain’s diverse wildlife.
