Over the past three years the Wild City Project has organised a series of events and worked with park groups and others on many of the City’s remarkable and varied nature reserves.
Unfortunately, the three year funding for the project has now come to an end and the BCC cuts will prevent any funding extension. The Wild City team has now published their final newsletter. As well as looking back on the three years of the project, Wild City is able to announce through the newsletter that 4 of their sites are about to be designated as Local Nature Reserves (LNRs) – Avon New Cut, Lamplighters Marsh, Narroways and The Northern Slopes. This will bring the total number of LNRs in Bristol to 12. Narroways, in Montpelier, is of course the nearest LNR to the Bishopston area.
The final newsletter can be seen here: http://www.bristolparksforum.org.uk/WildCityNews14.pdf
