Civic Saturday Hilbre Island
Sat 12 August 2017, 11:00 – 18:00 BST
The Wild Side Of the City.
Find out how a group of friends and the council ranger successfully care for Hilbre. Islands, like old buildings and parks, need care and maintenance.
Walk out for a day on the island.
Meet Allen, the Chair, and some Friends of Hilbre, the group who help maintain the island and nature reserve.
The island’s ranger, Matt and his boss Christine, will introduce the island’s wildlife. Explore the wildflower meadows, clamber round the rocks and beaches, watch the seals and birds, hunt for treasure in the flotsam and jetsam, picnic and find out more about the island.
Walk back, as the tide goes out in the afternoon.
