Working in the Sunshine

Wednesday, March 31st 2021

There was more clearing up along Risedale Beck, after the tree felling.  The day started with removing the remaining logs on the beck path.  Not the usual sized logs!

Each log had to be taken out by wheelbarrow.  Not an easy job and would certainly be classed as a 'Green Gym' day.

Some of the logs were used for log pile habitats.  There are many varied styles but this one is special, using the cut trunk as part of it,

and providing a resting place to stop and watch and listen.  Vegetation will soon begin to claim this log pile and so provide homes for many animals and plants.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who have worked on this project, following the Covid rules and regulations.  The Management Group express their gratitude for all this work.  It is much appreciated.
