Events Programme - Autumn 2018
Created on a floodplain in Kirkstall Valley to complement the nearby River Aire and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, Rodley Nature Reserve provides an attractive wetland habitat for many migrating wildfowl and waders (see www.rodleynaturereserve.org). For our visit, we will aim to catch the 9.36am First Bus to York from Dunnington, the Zap bus from York to Leeds and then the X6 or 670 bus to Rodley Nature Reserve. Alternatively, if you prefer to drive, we could meet you near its car park at 1pm at the nature reserve’s café, which provides hot drinks but no food. Instead, bring a packed lunch and your binoculars too. There will be an optional walk back to Leeds along the canal of some 5.5 miles if you are feeling fit, or instead take the bus option back to Leeds, and then to Dunnington.
Wednesday 7th November - Giving the Wild a Voice
Amy-Jane Beer is a talented biologist, wildlife writer and journalist who lives near York, and who has made many fascinating contributions to the BBC Wildlife magazine and the Guardian’s Country Diary, as well as to other publications. This evening she will be giving us her illustrated presentation on the topic Giving the Wild a Voice: reporting, celebrating and fighting for Nature. It should be an evening not to miss. Meet at 8pm in Dunnington Reading Room. Admission is free to members, non-members £1.50, refreshments 50p
