This was sent in from the Wildlife Trust’s City Local group…..it sounds like a good initiative….
The Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trusts (NWT) Nottingham Urban Wildlife Scheme NUWS) has been working with the City Council Rangers and the NWT City Local Group (CLG) to establish a roving volunteer team to support conservation work on those City Wildlife sites which do not currently have their own Friends Groups.
A Saturday morning in January saw some of us burning off the calories at Whitemoor Nature Reserve.
Led by City Ranger Simon (who is also Vice-Chair of NUWS and a CLG committee member) we cleared scrub and bramble to enable some of the grassland to recover, providing a valuable diversity of habitat.
And we had some fun, exercise and fresh air – all those involved will happily repeat the experience.
We have further sessions planned:
Sunrise Hill – Saturday 20th February 10.00 – 2.00, meet at the entrance on Landcroft Crescent, off Arnold Road in Bestwood.
Sandy Banks – Saturday 12th march 10.00-2.00, meet at the the junction of Edwards Lane/Breckhampton Road/Chippenham Road in Bestwood.
More will follow and if you’d like to join us please contact Simon or myself.
