Take a look at these great photos by @TheBrumReaper from CoCoMAD 2022, that took place last weekend in @CotteridgePark! It was a fantastic turnout, the rain didn't stop the fun 🌳💚🎉🥳 Congratulations to all of the volunteers that helped to make it such a wonderful event.

This is great news @NaturallyBirmi1!
We are working with BCC Ecologist, Wildlife Trust and BCC Parks to look at where a change of grass verge management can happen across the whole city as part of the City of Nature / Nature Recovery Stratergy. To increase diversity of species and support pollinators.
