Thanks to funding from the Postcode Local Trust for woodland improvements, we have been able to set up a new project for 2018 focused on enhancing the woodlands here at St Nicks for our local community, nature reserve users and for our all-important wildlife.
The St Nicks Community Woodland was planted with 7000 trees between 1996 – 2001 in memory of local environmentalist John Lally. The woodland totals 14-acres and is home to a variety of different species. The project aims to raise awareness of the importance of woodlands for wildlife and engage local community members and volunteers alike in skills training, work days and events to encourage better use and enthusiasm for our woodlands. This will help St Nicks Community Woodland develop into even more of a wildlife haven for our existing species – and potentially encourage new species too.
Work will include:
