Snowdrop, Galanthus nivalis

Snowdrop, Galanthus nivalis

Beautiful Snowdrops dot the lawns and verges. Brilliant pinks, yellows and purples of crocuses are starting to shine through as they emerge from the soil. These are sure signs that the bleak winter is coming to an end and spring is finally on the way!
 With the arrival of spring also comes the arrival of the 2013 surveying season. After the success of last year and the doubling in size of the team this year, the Biodiversity Gardens Project is looking to make 2013 bigger and better than the year before! For that to happen we need to expand our new team of surveying volunteers and are now recruiting.
If you have a good knowledge of our native wildlife and plants, or even an extensive horticultural knowledge, you can help out with our project to map out Suttons wildlife, by joining us as a Garden Surveying Volunteer. This is a fantastic opportunity for those of you looking to gain surveying experience or who want to show off your knowledge. Those who joined us last year had a fantastic time and really helped us out a lot whilst also gaining valuable new skills in flora and fauna identification.
