Active conservation in your Wildspace – get involved!

Are you free next Saturday afternoon (24 July) and able to do a bit of hard work to help local wildlife? We’re organising a work party to assist local farmer John Lee clear ragwort from the flood meadow on the east side of the river. This will help him maintain cattle grazing there without the need for chemical weed control, and so benefit wading birds.

If you can get involved please meet on the A142 bridge over the river (just south of the station) at 2pm. Wear long sleeves and trousers, and bring gloves, as ragwort is poisonous. This is one of several work events we’re planning over the next few months so if you can come to this one, or if you can’t but may be able to help later on, PLEASE WRITE TO lcpre@elywildspace.org.uk and we’ll make sure you get future mailings.
