Centenary Nature Trail
The Centenary Nature Trail is a self-led teacher’s resource was jointly created by Stranmillis College and RSPB NI. However, the Trail can be used by anyone visiting the campus and includes wonderful wildlife stories shared by staff from the College. The activities at stop 4, stop 7 and stop 9 (highlighted green) go towards a bronze level RSPB Wild Challenge award
Have fun getting close to some of the amazing wildlife that Stranmillis is protecting. In spring, you will see bees emerging from hibernation pollinating flowers like yellow crocuses and the beautiful bank of bluebells, hear birds singing and perhaps spot the migratory Swift from Africa darting across the sky. Through the summer months, watch butterflies fluttering and listen to bees buzzing as together they search for nectar in summer wildflowers like white clover and dog rose. In autumn, the leaves change colour and beautiful fungi magically appear, providing food and shelter for many animals. There is lots of berry food for birds on the trees and bushes In winter, watch birds searching for food and take time to stop and admire the bare branches of the majestic ancient trees.
To keep safe: let your teacher be the leader, walk, don’t run, so you don’t trip or fall and stay on the path to keep away from the deep pond and prickly trees and bushes.
