Tuesday 11 October

Conservation in Action 4 - Heathland management - Lindow Common, Wilmslow

Lindow Common is a Site of special scientific interest (SSSI) which means we have to manage it to maintain the special heathland qualities it has. Unless we manage the self seeding trees, the area will quickly revert to woodland and not the endangered lowland heathland we are protecting. Help the rangers to clear the birch trees from the site and make birch bundles for use on other sites as river bank protection.

Cost: Free event
Time: 9:30am to 3:00pm
Meeting Point: Lindow Common car park, Racecourse Rd, Wilmslow, SK9 5NQ
