20-03-2015: February and March’s mega blog

February and much of March has been a busy month with events changing dates, new joint events with the Environmental Working Group and the change of seasons from winter to spring making for a fun and hectic schedule for biodiversity volunteering.

This is a bit of a bumper blog to catch you all up on the goings on over the KU campuses – and from the number of photos that will follow, I’m going with the old adage – a photo is worth a 1000 words!
