Poster for Salisbury Primary SchoolGo Green in Darlaston

People in Darlaston and Moxley will have the chance to learn new skills that could help in greening the area and getting more people engaged with wildlife later this month.

The “Darlaston Goes Green” and “Moorcroft Wood” projects are partnerships between Salisbury Primary School, Kings Hill Primary School, the Friends of Moorcroft Wood & The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham & the Black Country.

During 2013, The Wildlife Trust will be delivering a series of training and family-friendly wildlife events.

From January 21st 2013, there will be a weekly Woodland Management training course taking place in Moorcroft Woods, Moxley and in Salisbury & Kingshill primary schools

Chris Wishart of The Wildlife Trust said “For people who want to learn new skills, like working outside or working with their hands and would like to help the Community, this is a great opportunity.

“We’re really looking forward to working with families in Darlaston & Moxley to help them build more places for the community and wildlife.”

The course is FREE and available to Adults (18+). Basic Environmental management & Green woodwork skills will be taught by trainers from the Wildlife Trust and refreshments will be provided.

Anyone who would like more information or would like to join the course should get in touch with Chris Wishart on 07975 540 954 – chris.w@bbcwildlife.org.uk
