Sunday 12th January 2020 –– Gorey 10:30-13.00
Happy New Year!!
Fancy working off some of those festive excesses and doing something good for wildlife? Come and join us!
Task This Sunday, we will be revisiting a project that was started last year to improve habitat for wall lizards and wild strawberry.
The Gorey area holds the largest colony of wall lizards in Jersey, Devon Gardens is a public garden in Gorey that is home to several important Jersey species. The walls provide great habitat for the lizards and wild strawberry but are becoming overgrown with vegetation, threatening the habitat so we will work to remove areas of dense ivy. The overall aim is to create a park area specifically designed for the wall lizards as well as creating some human habitats where people can sit and soak up the great views of the Castle and Grouville Bay.

Children All are welcome, young or old although we do ask that volunteers under 16 years of age are accompanied by an adult.
