Walking with wildlife is good for your brain :)

From the Washington Post “In the past several months, a bevy of studies have added to a growing literature on the mental and physical benefits of spending time outdoors. That includes recent research showing that short micro-breaks spent looking at a nature scene have a rejuvenating effect on the brain — boosting levels of attention — and also that kids who attend schools featuring more greenery fare better on cognitive tests.”

Join us in the evening of 21st July (details available shortly) to look at our urban wildlife and habitats, identify moths, and look out for bats. We’re by no means in the wild, but we do have wildlife!

The event will be free, and suitable for all ages and abilities.
