With the crisp winter weather coming to a close it’s time to get out and explore the wonders of Delhi’s countryside in spring.  The Conservation Education Centre, located in the Asola Wildlife Sanctuary, offers up ten excellent ways to enjoy Delhi’s natural environment this February. 

If you want to see the wonders of wetlands on Delhi’s borders, watch winter birds arrive at their migration sites, see butterflies flutter, take a trip around the President’s garden or learn the tricks of trade of wildlife photograpy, then the Conversation Education Centre (CEC) have got an amazing programme lined up for you this February.

About a 30 – 45 minute early morning drive from central Delhi, the CEC is on the fringes of the massive Tughlakabad Fort, South Delhi, in the Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary.

This 21 square kilometres green space is home to over 200 species of birds, 10 species of mammals, 10 species of reptiles, eight amphibians and over 90 species of butterfly.  And they are all easiily accessible thanks to the staff at the excellent Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS).

Since 1883, this organisation has been promoting the wonders of natural world, educating Indians about the natural environment and striving to protect what’s naturally beautiful.

So, to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and arrive at a place where trees and open scrub land replace concrete and tarmac and serenity reigns supreme, check out the 10 nature walks offered by  CEC this February.

You won’t regret it.
