City Nature Challenge in KNighton

    Knighton Wild members took part in two events for the City Nature Challenge 2019 between 26th and 29th May. 

    On Saturday 27th, members worked with Friends of Knighton Green to record as many species as possible in Knighton Green, helping to establish a baseline of what is present before the wildflower sowing and other management changes take effect. 

    On Sunday 28th, we worked with Friends of Knighton Park, the Knighton Park Gardening Club and the City Council to run an event in Knighton Park at which we recorded many species and spoke to members of the public who also brought plants and insects they had found to the basecamp for identification.  The number of species recorded in Leicester will be known in the next week or so.
