Event description

Description

Come for a day exploring this fabulous National Nature Reserve. Wrens Nest National Nature reserve is located in the heart of the Dudley Borough in the West Midlands. The reserve is surrounded by several housing estates in a socially deprived area, which has lead to the warden team having to deal many challenges to site management from the local population. Learn the techniques they have used to keep the site safe, protect the ecology and geology and engage with the community.

As well as a day looking at the challenges of managing a national nature reserve in an urban area, learn about its unique geological history. The site has impressive geological features and is one of the most notable in the British Isles for its fossils from the Silurian era. The day will include time for fossil hunting, and time for looking at the management of the limestone grasslands and impressive underground caverns. The caverns are important hibernation sites to many species of bat including the lesser horseshoe.

Please meet at the car park of the nature reserve. Tea and Coffee will be provided, but please bring a packed lunch.

For more information about the day, please contact Helen Edwards on 01384 814642 (Mon to Weds) or email Helen.C.Edwards@dudley.gov.uk
