Our 'Adopt-a-Wood Scheme has really taken off!

Our 'Adopt-a-Wood Scheme' is going from strength to strength, thanks to our growing number of volunteers!

The scheme aims to involve local people to take ownership of woodlands and denes close to them.  The volunteers monitor the woodlands, through various methods, such as just walking through and looking around for evidence of squirrels, to putting up squirrel feeders and monitoring its use. Along with identifying red or grey squirrels. Removing grey squirrels and feeding red squirrels.

Full training is given to all our volunteers.  If you are interested in monitoring a woodland near you.

Please get in touch with Steve: 07779 577485
