Central region volunteering autumn update and events

Hello there,

As summer draws to its conclusion, I wonder how time has flown by so quickly! Not that I am complaining, autumn has always been my favourite time of the year, a time of change in the natural world and (in my opinion) the best time to visit woodlands!

Over the past year our central region team made up of staff and volunteers has achieved lots for woods and trees. We’ve been carrying out wildlife surveys, running plant translocation trials, delivering events, installing trails and interpretation and lots more! As ever, thank you so much for your hard work and support! In this newsletter we’d like to tell you more about what we’ve achieved together, as well as invite you to our future events.

Feeling good in the wood!

The future is looking brighter at Uffmoor Wood! Visitors who attended our recent event there learnt about the fascinating wildlife species that dwell onsite and experienced our ‘tree-laxation station’!

Innovation and wildflowers at Martinshaw
The Woodland Trust works to restore Planted Ancient Woodlands and are trialling new techniques at Martinshaw Wood to increase the populations of floral species following conifer removal.

Purple Emperor makes grand appearance!

Our super team of volunteers at Heartwood joined forces with Butterfly Conservation to track down the elusive purple emperor butterfly.

Exploring through your senses

Everdon Stubbs is a beautiful woodland on the outskirts of Daventry. As part of our ‘Love your woods’ campaign we’ve installed a beautiful new sensory trail.
