Join a delightful walk on 25 May

Over the next few weeks the chalk grassland of Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve near Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire, will become a riot of colour as the wildflowers start to bloom and butterflies take to the air.

On Sunday, 25 May from 1pm to 3pm you can join Reserve Manage Mick Venters to discover more about the fragile chalk downland habitat, the constant fight to halt the encroachment of invading scrub and trees and have a go at identifying some of the plants. If it’s warm enough, you should see lots of different butterflies too.

The walk costs £3 for adults and £2 for children. Spaces are strictly limited and booking is essential on 01844 355 506 or crose@chilternsaonb.org.
