Close to Mayow Park, the small reserve at Dacres Wood was open to the public today. Around 70 people visited, including volunteers from Forest Hill Society who provided refreshments and gave guided tours. Children were given 'scavenger hunt' activity sheets to help them get up close to the wildlife in the reserve. Steve Grindlay gave an excellent talk on 'Art and Artists in Forest Hill and Sydenham' at midday, repeated at 2pm.
There seems to be great interest in starting up a Friends of Dacres Wood. Such a group would be able to open the reserve to the public more frequently and do some nature conservation work to improve the different habitat zones around the site. Anyone interested in helping to set up this group should pass on their contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org .
