Come and help us build some wooden tree boxes, which will be installed around the Meadows with microphones inside them for the CitySounds project. This will be a great chance to learn some basic woodwork skills, whilst also contributing to an exciting community project. No previous woodwork experience required!

A bit about the CitySounds project:

The CitySounds project is installing audio capture devices at several locations across the Meadows in order to capture sound recordings of of bats, birds and other wildlife; as well as traffic, and human activity. This audio data will be used to answer questions such as: How active is the bat population around the Meadows? Does traffic noise change animal behaviour over the course of a day? What is the pattern of human activity during different seasons of the year?
