A FREE city walk is being held at 10.30am on Sunday July 6 to learn more about the urban wildlife making itself at home in Exeter.

Exeter City Council's countryside and parks services will start the event by leading a guided walk around Mincinglake Valley Park looking at how the meadows and woodlands are managed to accommodate wildlife such as wildflowers and birds.

This will be followed by a visit to Marypole Allotments to show how wildlife can be encouraged in people's own allotments and gardens with suggested ideas for how everyone can do the same for their own 'patch.'

The meeting point is by Sylvannia Community Hall and car park at Mincinglake Valley Park, off Stoke Hill, Exeter.

All are welcome.
