1mile² Smethwick

1mile² Smethwick is delivered in partnership with Urban LivingHybrid and the Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country.

Sunday 7 November 2010 12:00 – 14:00

Paul Stephenson from the Wildlife Trust and local artist Melanie Tomlinson led a nature walk as part of 1mile² Smethwick. Meeting outside Galton Valley Canal Heritage Centre, attendees explored the plants, insects, animals found in the area during autumn and helped plan a route for a new permanent art & nature trail for Smethwick.

In February 2011 participants made objects to place along the route that reflect local cultures and produced a guide to the new trail featuring local stories.
