The Group has a different experience every month. It is all about having fun: looking at and listening to nature; plenty of fresh air and exercise; new venues; countless opportunities to identify and photograph birds, plants and insects, in fact the world of living things. All this while surrounded by beautiful scenery and always followed by a sociable lunch.
At Secret Hills we met the mammoth that was even older than any of us, discovered stories of the hidden landscape, its people, its history and its heritage.
Lake Vyrnwy Farm in the lambing season was really back to nature, an amazing experience in a remarkable setting but no volunteers to join in the action.
At Weston Park three centuries of garden design were explained to us by the knowledgeable head gardener. No one worried about the rain because we were rewarded with a bonus of a tour of the house.
Attingham Park finds us trying to identify which of the huge variety of fungi were safe to include in our risotto.
Ellesmere to see the herons nesting: fantastic.
Talk on the elusive pine marten and how to spot where they live.
A walk and a talk along the Darwin path and into his garden.
Queenswood Arboretum to see the wonderful autumn colours.
- and many many more venues since the Group was formed three years ago.
