School Children hunt bugs at Moor Green

On Thursday 37 pupils from Finchampstead Primary School came out to explore Moor Green Lakes. The children unearthed pond minibeasts, and learned about life cycles, podgy bats and the life of a ranger. There was also a healthy splash of creative drama as groups acted out animals.

Sarah Dodds their teacher said;
“Well Stuart, what can I say….just a great big thank you to you and your team, from the bottom of my heart. I’ve had one of my best days as a teacher today. Seeing the children so engaged and enthralled by all you shared with them and got them involved in, was just brilliant. In the words of one of my girls, “It was epic!”.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
