Survey squad needed!

Next Saturday 9 September, a survey squad will be making an assessment of the green wall at Madeira Drive. We have space for volunteers.

An important part of our seafront heritage, the green wall is home to at least 99 species of wild plant, and is the longest green wall in Europe.

 

The squad will be counting the number of Japanese spindle trees – planted in c1870 – taking measurements, and assessing the health of the green wall that runs from Duke’s Mound in the East, and west along Madeira Drive.

We have space for a couple of volunteers so if you’re interested drop us a line here, via the ‘contact us’ page..

Saturday 9 September 2017, from 1pm. Meet at Duke’s Mound.

If you just want to come along and say hi, then do that too!
