This Sunday, The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country are offering people in Bilston a chance to discover autumn wildlife.

The guided walk, which starts at 2:30pm in Peascroft Wood, will take visitors round the site to see the beautiful colours and see what plants and animals can be seen. As part of the new 3-year project in partnership with Wolverhampton City Council and largely funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to improve this treasured natural space, The Wildlife Trust are putting on activities to get more people out exploring their local woodland.

Peascroft Wood Reserve Officer, Alison Wilkes of The Wildlife Trust, explains: “The colours in woodlands at this time of year are fantastic, so we want to take people and show them some new features of Peascroft Wood that they may not have been aware of before. It’s a lovely place to spend time and walking in woods in the autumn must be one of the best ways to spend a Sunday afternoon.”

The wood can be accessed from Central Avenue and there is a car park Mountford Lane, not far from there. Bookings for places on the walk can be made by email via info@bbcwildlife.org.uk or by phone 0121 454 1199.

This is one of a number of similar events The Trust will be running at Peascroft Wood throughout the year and they are also running regular volunteer days on Thursdays and the fourth Sunday of each month.

Please contact Alison Wilkes for more details: Alison.w@bbcwildlife.org.uk or 0121 454 1199.
