Photos from our last year’s Natural History Walks series, July 2011.
Last year in July Cranfield University Walks, with the support of the Community Development Office, ran a mini series of special natural history walks that were led by Alan Nelson, staff from School of Applied Sciences. Alan has in-depth knowledge of fauna and flora; dragonflies in particular. Three of these special walks took place: to Caldecotte Lake; from Olney to Clifton Reynes; and around Emberton Country Park. The events proved to be extremely popular, with more than 20 students and staff attending the first two events and a smaller number attending the third (due to poor weather on that day).
