What's a Nature Diary

Its a way learning about what wildlife and other things are on Slopes...whether you are just visiting yourself, or visiting as part of a group or school.

Its a booklet - but involves you in a number of activities which you then record in the booklet.

The booklet is full of interesting information about the history and people involved in the area, as well as wildlife - so we think its well worth a look.

There's seven parts:

1 - Introduction to the Slopes
2 - Maps
3 - Spring
4 - Summer
5 - Autumn
6 - Winter
7 - Further information

The seasonal sections - Spring, Summer and Autumn and Winter - are designed to be used during those periods - so that you can see what is about during those seasons.
