Nearly a year has elapsed since the Friends of Wom Brook invited a wider circle of participation in their conservation activities. One of the most successful age groups to join in has come from amongst some of the young people of the village.
Although the above photograph was taken earlier in the year, it represents the popularity of the periodic Saturday morning sessions down by the Brook. In addition to conducting searches for different species of insects and other invertebrates, as well as conducting stream-based surveys of wildlife, young members of the group have been involved in bank clearance and other conservation work. Plans are in hand to organise visits to other wildlife habitats of special interest locally.
