Autumn Watch

Dragonflies are still abundant in Autumn.
This one is a Ruddy Darter.
Family Autumn Watch: Although we are enjoying an "Indian Summer" just now,  it's time to think about  our Autumn Watch event. The Friends of Paxton Pits Nature Reserve, the Wildlife Trust and the Rangers have organised a big programme of activities for visitors of all ages. We will even have hot food on the go. The event is mainly based at our new Environmental Education Centre and runs from 10 am to 3 pm. There's no need to book; just turn up with your family and friends.

Help us get funding, Please! The Wildlife Trust has submitted our Out of the Blue project at Paxton Pits Environmental Education Centre for Natwest Community Force scheme funding and have reached the voting stage. ‘Out of the Blue’ will enable us to run impromptu activities in the environmental education area at Paxton Pits on sunny days in the school holidays when all else is quiet.

Voting has started and we need your help!! Log on to here you register to vote. We are located within the Cambridge region. If you search on the Wildlife Trust for Cambridgeshire and zoom into the map you should eventually find us (sorry the direct link doesn’t seem to work!)

Our profile for the Out of the Blue project for the Natwest Community Force scheme is now complete with photos (see link below).  Voting has started so please spread the word as much as you can. 

I have also included a link to share the project on facebook which you can pick up from our main project page too so please do encourage everyone who can to facebook or twitter our page.
