With only 2 months left on our wonderful Ice Age Ponds project we have been concentrating on bringing all of our work together.  This has involved creating lots of new interpretation panels, a booklet, and revisiting sites we have done practical work on, to see how they are developing.

Ice Age Pond Surveying

This is our final set of Ice Age pond surveying.  If you would like to volunteer to do one of our pond surveys then please do get in touch d.hutton@herefordshirewt.co.uk  and we will add your to our list and find you a pond.  If you have a pond, you think might be Ice Age and are happy for us to visit then please let us know (if you have told us before, then give us a gentle nudge, we don’t want to miss any ponds out).

Missed any events/talks/ training?

May 1-7th is #Amphibianweek, so this would be a great time to catch up on any of the talks and training that are all available online at: https://www.herefordshirewt.org/iceageponds/training-events-resources  which includes our Identifying Amphibians training by our project ecologist Will Watson.

If you are a keen gardener then, 2nd – 8th May is #NationalGardenWeek and you can find out all about Ponds and Pollinators by Dr Richard Walton, or Restoring Ice Age Ponds by Prof. Carl Sayer to provide inspiration for your garden.
