Today the Friends of Preston Park were delighted to be involved in the first BioBlitz day, organised by the Sussex Wildlife Trust. About 250 school children participated in a quiz about the flora and fauna of Preston Park. The weather was great and the children had a fantastic time.
Katie Eberstein of the Sussex Wildlife Trust said:
‘Thank you firstly for your help herding children today, and secondly (and most importantly) giving us the idea of using the trail as a starting point. Without this, I think the event may never have happened! We had a wonderful day – 250 happy children all learning new things about their local park. In the feedback, nearly every child said they had discovered some place in the park that they didn’t know before.’
