Central region volunteering autumn update and events
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.
