Team Tuesday

Tuesday, June 3rd 2014

Volunteers were out in force again helping to maintain the pathways and habitats here at your favourite local nature reserve. The main task for the morning was clearing invasive Silver Birch and Willow from the Scrapes which had started to encroach around several of the ponds.

Everyone got stuck in and before we knew it the pool edges were clear and the area much improved.

After a quick break volunteers prepared the net rides for the 4th CES bird ringing session this weekend, and strimmed along pathways to keep them open, as well as cutting back overhanging branches on the footpath along Risedale Beck.

It is the first of our Coffee Mornings at Richmond Town Hall on Thursday, if anyone has any donations for the raffle or tombola, or some tasty treats for the cake stall please bring them into the Field Centre tomorrow or drop them off in Richmond on Thursday morning.

Thank you everyone for your hard work today!
