Churches Count on Nature
June 4 @ 12:00 pm - June 12 @ 5:00 pm
Churches up and down the country will be marking Love Your Burial Ground Week with special events, including diversity counting. Churchyards, particularly those in city centres, can be havens for wildlife with a broad range of plants, insects, birds and animals living in and visiting them.
The churchyard at Discover DeCrypt is in the care and management of the city council, but a team of enthusiastic volunteers has been working hard to develop the churchyard, planting, trimming and maintaining special wildlife areas. Not only does the churchyard now look much better, it is an even better habitat for our wildlife.
We’ll be doing a diversity count throughout the week and you are most welcome to join us. There will be identification guides up inside the church and there’s a special churchyard challenge for children. We’ll be keeping a tally of the species spotted, so be sure to report back to us about what you have seen.
The churchyard is accessible at any time, but the church is open only 11am until 4pm Wednesday to Sunday inclusive.
