Events

It’s our monthly work morning on Tuesday 17th April so if you have time to spare, meet at Mill Lock Car Park at 10 a.m. There is a choice of two activities – we will tackle the nettles which are obscuring the ransomes and bluebells on Lupin Hill and if you don’t fancy that there is litter to pick up.

The Leicester Environmental Volunteers (LEV) monthly litterpick is on the following Tuesday, 24th April 10 am – meet canal St. Car Park. As usual you will need to book with LEV to take part (lev@leicester.gov.uk).

We will be having another BIRD WALK on SATURDAY 28 April, starting 7.30 a.m. at Canal St. Car Park.  Last year’s walk was a great success and Brian Stafford, whose in depth knowledge of birds and birdsong is fantastic, will be leading the walk once more.   After the walk, there is the option of going to the Lock Cottage, where they will open early for us to have breakfast.   BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL AS NUMBERS ARE LIMITED (we don’t want to scare all the birds away!)   To book, email Anne on annehayto@gmail.com or phone 0116 2832978.

General events info
AMAS focuses on continuing to promote an understanding of the meadows through participation in events such as Bio-blitz, local community events, organisation of public events such as successful guided wildflower walks, dawn chorus walks to hear the song-birds of the morning and a Fruits of Nature Fun afternoon. We also work closely with the Council Riverside Team in maintaining the reserve, for example, organised litter-picking every month, removal of Himalayan Balsam, tree and bulb planting and other works as needed. Social events such as picnics on the Meadows and skittle nights have also been organised.
