Community Wildlife Mapping - Saturday 13th November 2021
November 13th 10:30am - 12:30pm
Join us on the hunt for wildlife in the wilderhood of Creekside. Even in hard urban environments like streets, footways, walls and the small fragments of habitat adjacent to them, wildlife makes a living.
This is a chance to get to know the wildlife that lives where we live. For instance Rue-Leaved Saxifrage has returned as a wild plant this century, it travelled in using railway lines and then spread on to the streets and other bare habitats. Or Little Egret which has become a common sight in Deptford Creek and Brookmill Park this century during the summer months.
We will be recording in a 2km square area around Deptford Creek - divided into smaller squares so we can see where species are living now and compare that with what we know of the situation at the turn of the millennium. Come along on a walk to find out more.
Meet at the main entrance to Greenwich Station, Greenwich High Street SE10 8JQ at 10:30am (What3words ///stud.vows.moon)
Please wear comfortable clothes and bring your own refreshments.
