Event Details

Spring into action protecting wild flower grasslands at Strother Hills Nature Reserve. Tasks today will include pruning overhanging tree branches and removing an old fence line in preparation for a new fence. This will allow animals to graze the meadow, encouraging wild flowers and meadow grasses to grow.

All tools, equipment and gloves will be provided as well as tea and coffee; please wear stout footwear and suitable clothing for outdoors and bring a packed lunch and a drink. You may wish to bring waterproofs, depending on the weather.

Come along and learn new skills, make friends and have fun whilst carrying out a programme of practical woodland and access tasks.

Park towards the end of Highfield Road on Whinfield Industrial Estate. Walk along the path from the end of the road and the volunteers will be working on either side. To find the volunteers on the day, please call Peter on 07484 093411.

This task is being run as part of the Gateshead Countryside Volunteers Programme.
