WCV marks 10+ years!

Celebrating this magnificent achievement, WCV has published a special booklet about our local wildlife.  Titled "Wildlife in the Worthys" it gives a unique insight into the flora and fauna and natural history of the upper Itchen valley.  Twelve monthly articles each describe a different aspect of the wildlife and habitats found in the area, beautifully illustrated with photographs and sketches.

The 40-page A4 booklet can be purchased for just 5 by contacting 07919 111221 or send an email to: enquiries@worthysconservationvolunteers.org.uk.

All proceeds will contribute to conservation activities.
