With restrictions easing, we’re holding outdoor events again.  Everyone is welcome to attend to learn more about, and help, local wildlife

Volunteer work party at Greenmore Ponds

Come along and lend a hand at our next conservation work party here at Greenmoor Ponds and join us for a couple of hours to help local wildlife.    

In February the frogs, toads and newts will be back here to breed.  Newt courtship involves males displaying to females in clear water.  So, to help them all we will be creating more open water in the upper pond by removing the invasive non-native plant Crassula and some of the yellow flag iris. 

Wear old clothes and wellies.  Bring thick rubber gloves and/or gardening gloves to protect your hands and keep them warm.  Tools will be provided, but you’re welcome to bring along a rake and garden fork if you have them. 

This green gym exercise might make you thirsty and peckish so you might also want to bring a water bottle or flask and snack for elevenses.

We look forward to seeing you on 30th October.  Email info@woodcotecg.org.uk if you have any queries.
