RSPB need people to take part in survey
HAMPSHIRE families are being urged to explore nature this autumn.
The RSPB hopes children and their parents will take part in its “Change through autumn” Wildsquare survey by looking for and recording fungi, leaves that have changed colour and wildlife.
The seasonal survey is one of several that the RSPB runs each year and can be carried out wherever there is nature – in a garden, park, woodland or playground.
Samantha Stokes, from RSPB South East, said: “Getting children inspired by nature at an early age is really important if we want them to care about the environment and conservation in the future.
“A Wildsquare survey is a great way for young people to get close to the nature around them, in their gardens, local park or nature reserve, and our town and city centres have a wealth of wildlife that might surprise people too.
“For this autumn-themed survey we want children to tell us things like what kind of fungi they can find and also what creatures they have found hiding under-neath rocks, stones or logs.”
To take part register at rspb.org.uk/wildsquare and download the survey form.
Once complete, the survey results can be entered through the website.
The survey runs until October 31.
