Langley Hall Nature Reserve visit is inspiration for school children during Nature Week

Solihull Editorial 3rd Jul, 2017   0

SOLIHULL school children had the chance to explore the wildlife and learn about the environment at Langley Hall Park Local Nature Reserve during a special Nature Week.

The week was organised by Solihull Council in partnership with the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, to celebrate and promote the park recently achieving Local Nature Reserve (LNR) status.

Over 350 school children (aged four to ten) from four local schools enjoyed taking part in a series of fun and informative wildlife themed activities.

They were encouraged to explore the different woodland, grassland, hedgerow and pond habitats, learning about biodiversity, woodland management, pollution and sustainability. Activities about hedgehog conservation proved to be the most popular with all age groups.




Coun Bob Sleigh OBE, Leader of Solihull Council, said: “Many of the children use the park on their journey to and from school.

“We hope that by opening their eyes to the diversity and importance of the LNR they will develop a greater appreciation of this wonderful green space and continue to value it for years to come.”
