Celebrate Wildlife in Peterborough on Saturday

Froglife will be at Olive Branch Community Gardens in Dogsthorpe this Saturday 24th March as part of a tree planting day which is open to all.   Our My Wild Life project will also be collecting wildlife memories and encouraging people to reminisce about their childhood experiences at the event.

Project Officer Jodie Coomber is looking forward to the day; “We’ve got some special items to remind people of their childhood adventures with wildlife and we hope parents and grandparents will bring the kids along and share memories of what they got up to growing up.”
Pop down to the Olive Branch Community Garden this Saturday

420 trees are being planted on the green space as part of the Queen’s Jubilee Woods project with the Woodland Trust. Froglife have been at the site in Dogsthorpe for the last six weeks working with a group of Wildlife Ambassadors to put in a wildlife pond and sensory garden, as well as hibernaculas and rockeries for wildlife to inhabit.

It’s hoped that the event will draw plenty of local people to the gardens to help plant trees, find out what the Ambassadors have been up to over the last 6 weeks, and learn more about the Oliver Branch’s plans for the future. Project Officers will be on hand to explain what the Ambassadors have achieved on the site, and to identify any wildlife that may already be living there.

- Come along and join in the Froglife fun between 11am and 3pm. Tree planting between 10am and 4pm.
