Autumn leaves

Sunday, November 8th 2009

With the recent wind and rain most of the leaves have now fallen from the trees creating a beautiful carpet on the floor (this photo was taken by Elizabeth).

Autumn leaves

The last few days have been so busy that the blog has been neglected! Askham Bryan students worked hard on Friday to clear more Gorse from the moor and carried out other essential jobs such as feeding hay to the cattle.

The new Christmas cards and the Foxglove 2010 calendars are now available to buy from the Field Centre (limited stock) and bookings are being taken for the Christmas party. Please book (and pay) soon if you would like to join us. See events for details.

We will be fundraising at Catterick Market on Sunday 15th November and need some more volunteers to help promote Foxglove Covert on the gates between 8am and 4pm. Please get in touch if you could give a couple of hours of your time, it will be much appreciated! It is good fun and the market will be a special 'Christingle' one.

Upcoming Events

Leap Into Nature!

Saturday 29th February 2020 | 10.30am start

Celebrate the Leap Year by learning about the hidden wildlife at the reserve. We will begin by identifying the moths in the moth trap (weather permitting) and then take a walk around the different habitats to see what is about. 

Come with a notepad to log the number of species, come with a camera to take some wonderful photos, or just come along as you are for a beautiful, enjoyable, informative walk.

Booking is essential as places are limited.

Suggested minimum donation of £5 per person. Please donate in advance to secure a place.

This event is free for Volunteers and Friends of the reserve.

March Winter Worky Day

Saturday 7th March 2020 | 10.00am - 3.00pm

Join our staff and volunteers for a fun day of practical habitat management tasks.  Specific tasks will be chosen nearer the time.  Come ready for all weather conditions and bring your oldest outdoor clothes as tasks will be mucky and may involve bonfires.

Booking is essential for this FREE event as a hot cooked lunch will be provided along with delicious homemade cakes.
