Dartford and Gravesend families encouraged to get involved in autumn survey
A WILDLIFE charity is encouraging families in Dartford and Gravesend to make the most of autumn and get involved in their latest survey.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) launched its Changes through Autumn survey last month.
It encourages families to record the types of fungi and wildlife they see in parks and gardens near their home.
Participants then enter their results on the RSPB website where they will be collated to provide the charity with an insight into how wildlife responds to the change in season.
RSPB south-east spokeswoman Samantha Stokes said: “Getting children inspired by nature at an early age is really important if we want them to care about the environment and conservation in the future.
“The more children and families that take part in Wildsquare, the clearer the picture we can get of our autumn wildlife.” Visit rspb.org.uk/wildsquare before October 31.
