Sharing Ideas

Thursday, June 8th 2023

As part of the ongoing work to develop a 5-year management plan for Foxglove Covert a workshop was held on 6th June, bringing volunteers and staff together to think about what we know about the reserve today, and to imagine how we would like it to be in 5-years time.  

The staff and volunteers divided themselves into groups.  The tasks given during the morning session dealt with the reserve as it is now.

After lunch the groups concentrated on the reserve of the future.  There was a lot of discussion about the habitats and species on site, and how to maintain and improve them,  the visitor experience, and attracting new people and groups.

The outputs are being summarized and will be reviewed in developing the new plan.

Many thanks to all who participated and to John Heslegrave for leading the event.
