2018

Sunday28th October. Bash the Bracken! We are trying to improve some of the areas below Wharncliffe Crags, for wildlife and livestock. After clearing areas of bracken brash we attract the livestock to the area with a salt lick and herb-rich hay. Their trampling further weakens the bracken and the livestock spread meadow seed in their stools. So the livestock do most of the hard work but we have to get the ball rolling. Hand tools and training provided, but please bring your own lunch and wear tough outdoor clothes and stout boots. Meet at the River Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish at 16.00.

 

Saturday 3rd November. Bash the Bracken with the UoS Conservation Volunteers. We will be following up last weekend's efforts by knocking back the bracken in the wood pasture above the crags, with the help of the University of Sheffield Conservation Volunteers. We have worked here for a few years and the progress is easy to see, but we want to enlarge the areas where bracken has been replaced by pasture, and this will be the first stage of the process.  Hand tools and training provided, but please bring your own lunch and wear tough outdoor clothes and stout boots. Meet at the River Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish at 16.00.

 

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.
