Don't miss the 2017 Festival of Wildlife, organised by the Hertfordshire and Middlesex Wildlife Trust in association with HNHS.
Like last year's successful event it is taking place over two days in beautiful Panshanger Park, near Hertford.
The Festival, kindly hosted by Tarmac, will celebrate our county's rich diversity of wildlife with events and activities, including a programme of short talks presented by HNHS. There will also be wildlife walks, conservation demonstrations and a range of activities for children and families.
The butterfly season is well underway and our beautiful new book Butterflies of Hertfordshire and Middlesex has been gathering fresh plaudits – including strong endorsement from natural history diarist Rupert Evershed.
Writing his monthly column in the Herts Advertiser he describes the book, by county recorder Andrew Wood as: "...an outstanding and thorough record of our local butterflies, but also a fantastically helpful and practical guide to actually going out and finding butterflies for yourself."
Tarmac, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and the Herts Natural History Society have won a prestigious Hertfordshire High Sherriff Award for their successful working partnership at Panshanger Park, receiving the ‘Highly Commended Award for a Voluntary-Private Sector Partnership’.
The awards, run by the High Sheriff in association with Hertfordshire Community Foundation, highlight, celebrate and encourage partnership working between voluntary or community sector organisations and the public or private sectors.
