CPRE Sussex reveals Festival of Spring programme

A local charity is offering a festival pass for its Spring Programme of exciting virtual events. CPRE Sussex is hosting five talks from January to March with topics ranging from rewilding an urban garden to encounters with Arctic wolves.

Anyone who buys a festival pass will be able to attend all five talks for the price of four. Funds raised will be shared between the charities taking part, including CPRE Sussex and Sussex Wildlife Trust.

“Our Festival of Spring pass is the ideal Christmas present for nature lovers, budding conservationists and city dwellers who want to know more about the countryside on their doorstep,” said CPRE Sussex director Brian Kilkelly. “This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about some of the projects shaping a greener future for Sussex and beyond.”

Helping shape a greener future for the local area, CPRE Sussex engage with decision makers, influencing them and challenging them to protect the Sussex countryside and green spaces. It informs on environmental issues and empower individuals and communities with robust evidence to defend and enhance the green spaces they love.

The Festival of Spring starts this month, with a presentation by Alice Parfitt, of Buglife, on the Changing Chalk partnership. In February, Dr Gerry Maguire Thompson will share his garden rewilding story and Dr Roger Smith will discuss his fascinating encounters with Arctic wolves during an expedition to Canada. In March, Henri Brocklebank from Sussex Wildlife Trust will give an insight into the Sussex kelp restoration project and Amanda Millar from Sussex Bat Group will talk about her rescue and rehabilitation work.
