Cumbria Volunteer Gathering
Thanks to everyone who came along to our last volunteer gathering of 2019, in Rydal Hall, Cumbria on Saturday. We were joined by Heather Swift, Cumbria site manager, who updated us all on what has been happening on our estate in the county. We were also joined by Alan Hunton, Lead ATI verifier and Tom Reed, ATI Citizen Science Officer. Alan gave an excellent introduction to the ATI and recording ancient trees. After a lovely lunch provided by the hall staff we then stepped out into the stunning landscape of the Rydal Hall Estate and the glorious autumn sunshine. We spent the afternoon recording ancient trees on the estate and appreciate the fabulous autumn colours.
Great to see everyone there. I always leave these events inspired and reinvigorated appreciating once more the passion and dedication of every one of you that combined helps us achieve so much!
