At such a difficult time, the wonders of the natural world around us can be a comfort, a distraction or an inspiration. Spring is underway and there’s so much to see, hear and smell! The insects are buzzing, the birds and singing and green shoots are all around.

While much of our activity and our events have been postponed, Herefordshire Wildlife Trust staff are still working for wildlife – catching up on paperwork, planning new projects and analysing data – just from the comfort of our homes!

And we’ve got lots of things for you to do too! We’ve created a webpage filled with activities for you to do at home in case you’re getting bored. There are activities for all ages with everything from rainy-day crafts to garden projects.

Full information on our response to the current crisis and our Things to Do pages can be found at: www.herefordshirewt.org

We’ll also be staying in touch via our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and you can sign up for our free e-newsletter through our website too.

HG Admin: If you would like to share what your group are doing – in more general terms or how you are coping/adapting at this time please see this link for what to send us: https://hgnetwork.org/weekly-focus-on-slot/
