Volunteers of NI – Nature needs you!

Did you know that you could help scientists to track the effects of weather and climate change on wildlife across the UK?

Nature’s Calendar is the UK’s biggest record of the changing seasons with 2.9 million records and data stretching back to 1736.  We need your help to capture what’s happening in Northern Ireland!

Recording is something you could do when your out volunteering on our estate or even out in your own garden!  The website is tablet and smartphone friendly so recording the timings of seasonal wildlife here in Northern Ireland couldn’t be simpler!

Just visit the Nature’s Calendar website for more information: https://naturescalendar.woodlandtrust.org.uk/

There are 70 species events that recorders can look out for, from first ladybird and first peacock butterfly to first song thrush singing and first leaf tint of oak, there’s something for everyone.

You choose which species events you want to look out for, you decide which locations you visit regularly and then submit the details via the website.  Start recording here.

Happy recording!
