Saving Trees and Preparing for Easter

Wednesday, April 3rd 2019

Students from Risedale Sports and Community College helped out by protecting young trees from browsing animals such as Roe Deer. They fitted guards over some saplings and re-staked them where necessary.

Many of the trees were on a steep bank which made the job interesting at times, walking up and down with tree tubes, ties and stakes.

The team worked hard as usual and used their problem solving skills!

This group have worked really hard in all weathers on all different kinds of conservation tasks and have made a real contribution over the autumn and winter months, well done and thank you to the Risedale Rangers!

Trevor and Darrel continued to 'live the dream' in the Yorkshire weather down by the lake repairing walkways and bridges! As the saying goes 'you can't make an omlette without cracking eggs'!

Back at the Field Centre moths were identified and preparations were made for Easter. Kate made some gorgeous Easter goodies that are now available to buy;  all proceeds from these sales will go directly to the Spigot Mere appeal. 

Our thanks to Team Wednesday for another productive day.
