Tasks and events in 2018

The Friends of Bowland plan to have at least one event every month, apart from December and January. We aim to have at least one task day every month - apart from Dec. We have walks and outdoor wildlife events in the spring, summer and autumn and talks as the days shorten. Both members and non members are welcome. Details of tasks and events for 2018 as well as information on joining are shown in this pdf - just click on the picture for an expanded view of the 2 pages.
