2018

Saturday 3rd March. Wood Pasture regeneration: Bracken brash clear-up. As part of our project to improve the quality of our wood pasture areas, for both wildlife and livestock, we will be cutting and clearing bracken brash and we would welcome volunteers to give us a hand. We have evidence that this management is improving the habitat for some bird species and reptiles, and is likely to be doing the same for many species of invertebrates. Tools and training will be provided where necessary. Please bring your own lunch and wear stout footwear and clothes to match the terrain and early March weather. Meet at the River Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish at 16.00.

 

Sunday 18th March. Birch bash on the heath. We have already had a couple of these this winter, but really need another to help the livestock keep down the birch regrowth. Fresh air, good views, aerobic exercise, all for free. Hand tools and training provided, but bring your own lunch and wear stout footwear and clothes to match the terrain and unpredictable spring weather. Meet at the River Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish at 16.00.

 

Sunday 13th May. What's happening at Wharncliffe? A chance to stroll around the nature reserve with some of the trustees discussing current management plans, while enjoying the birds and the bluebells. Open to all but please remember to wear stout footwear. Meet at the River Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish at 14.00.

 

Saturday 10th November. Let's find some Fungi! With Michael (Ziggy) Senkans. Please join Ziggy and friends on a stroll around the reserve looking for and identifying fungi. We have a good selection available and are always looking for something new. Joint event with Sorby NHS. Please wear tough boots and clothes appropriate for the time of year. Meet at the River Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish at 13.00.
