ONLINE: Wildflowers at Marble Hill
Jul 20 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
ONLINE: Wildflowers at Marble Hill

Perennial wildflower meadows have been in long term decline for the last eighty years. The Environment Trust is supporting English Heritage’s Marble Hill Revived programme in enhancing grasslands and encouraging more native wildflowers to flourish in an area of Marble Hill Park near Orleans Road. In July volunteers will spread cuttings from the rich meadow near Ham House by the ‘green hay’ technique.

Join on Zoom on Monday 20th July from 10am to learn more about perennial wildflower meadows and how we can all improve wildlife habitats. To register email Rachel Morrison, rachel.morrison@english-heritage.org.uk

Colleagues at English Heritage would appreciate your feedback about Marble Hill Park and the Marble Hill Revived project. If you can spare a few minutes please fill out this short anonymous survey: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MarbleHillRevival

Speakers from Extinction Rebellion will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the psychology around climate change and the contribution that social movements can make to accelerate positive change.

Everyone is welcome and there will be time to ask questions and discuss afterwards.
