Successful plant identification walk, Sunday 17 June

Nine of us joined Rupert Higgins of Wessex Ecological Consultancy to explore the "Ashtrack" that runs alongside the railway just across from the Wapley Bushes Local Nature Reserve. It's obviously an important wildlife corridor, bringing new flora and fauna into the area. There were lots of interesting plants, though no great rarities, and Rupert taught us a lot.

The event was sponsored by South Gloucestershire Council as part of Councillor Tony Davis's Member Awarded Funding grant.

Plant identification walk near Shire Way - Sunday 17 June

Please join expert Rupert Higgins of Wessex Ecological Consultancy and members of Wapley Bushes Conservation Group to explore the path and linear woodland alongside the railway. We saw several notable plants here last year, and we want to find out what else is along this well-used pathway just across the railway from Wapley Bushes. This event is sponsored by South Gloucestershire Council.

Meet at the Shire Way entrance to the woodland, south Yate, BS37 8US, 10.00 am.
