Despite rainy weather, more than 1,500 people, including many families, attended the Festival of Wildlife held over the weekend of 27 and 28 July in the beautiful setting of Panshanger Park, near Hertford.
More than 50 geology, archaeology and natural history enthusiasts attended a very successful conference on Saturday 13 July in memory of John Catt who died in December 2017 and was the contributing editor of our best-selling publication Hertfordshire Geology and Landscape.
Make a date with this year's Festival of Wildlife in the lovely surroundings of Panshanger Park on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 July (10am to 4pm).
Organised by the Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust, in association with HNHS and Tarmac plc, this free festival celebrates the diversity of wildlife in our county and features walks, talks, family activities and conservation demonstrations.
