Harmony Woods Butterfly Transect

Who is this for?

Andover Trees United are asking for volunteers for their new butterfly transect of Harmony Woods, Andover, Hampshire.

This transect runs from April through the summer months to September, with one walk having to be done per week, taking about an hour in total.  If there are enough volunteers this should hopefully be one walk per month, or every two months, though the more records the better.

The records will be used to monitor how good the site is doing for wildlife and how butterflies are fairing in the wider countryside.  No experience is necessary and instructions and guidance will be given.

Eastleigh Sustainable Vision

Who is this for?

A new Eastleigh Sustainable Vision group was launched in August with the aim to deliver practical action and education in the community to improve the environment and help move towards a more sustainable Eastleigh. The first project instigated is to increase the recycling of food waste in the Borough by encouraging residents to either compost or use the brown bins issued by the Council.

So if you are interested in how you can grow more, waste less, use less water, cycle more, breath cleaner air, generate our own energy or any other sustainability and environmental topics then join the Eastleigh Sustainable Vision group on Wednesday 12th October from 6pm to 7.30pm at Eastleigh Borough Council, Eastleigh House, Upper Market Street, Eastleigh, SO50 9YN.

The meeting will continue the discussion and look for ways in which people can work together as a community to improve the environment and help move towards a more sustainable Eastleigh.
