Thurs Mar 3rd – Kirtlington’s Hedgehog Superhighway with Stephen William Powles. The UK hedgehog population has suffered a dramatic decline over the last 10 years. Critical to hedgehog conservation in urban environments is their ability to move through a wider landscape. Stephen Powles will describe how his brother, Chris, inspired the villagers of Kirtlington to take an interest in their hedgehogs and how they went on to create a “Hedgehog Superhighway” of interconnected gardens. Talk is online via ZOOM and cost £3 per device (incl booking fee) via https://www.nottinghamshirewildlife.org/events/2022-03-03-south-notts-group-talk-kirtlingtons-hedgehog-superhighway-stephen-william-powles
