NatureWatch is all about enjoying our natural environment, either through nature-based activities at our Community Allotment site, or by exploring local green spaces. There are two different NatureWatch groups running in the city on Wednesdays and Thursdays – see the details below.
Wednesdays, 1.45 – 3pm
Milton Piece Community Allotment site (Locksway Road, Milton, PO4 8LF)
This group meets every week at the Milton Piece Community Allotment site. Here, we have nature-based activities, for instance, observing and identifying nature, making herbal teas, learning about birdsong. We do have undercover facilities if it is raining. We welcome suggestions and ideas for future activities. There is a toilet at the site.
Thursdays, 10.30am – 12.30pm
Various locations in Portsmouth
This group visits different green spaces in Portsmouth throughout the year. These sessions are slow paced, as we take time to look at the wildlife and plants and try and identify them. If you would like to capture any images of the plants and wildlife we find on the sessions, then you are welcome to bring along your camera. To find out where the Thursday sessions will be taking place each week, please contact the team using the details below.
We try to visit places that are close to bus routes and have toilet facilities nearby, but we cannot always guarantee this.
Please wear suitable clothing for the weather – such as sturdy shoes, a sunhat, suncream and plenty of water in warm weather, or for cold or wet weather, warm and waterproof clothing.
