Volunteers continue to conserve Knutsford Heath

By on September 14, 2017

Local conservation group Friends of the Heath, supported by volunteers from Cheshire Wildlife Trust and local residents, continued their work to conserve Knutsford Heath this week by clearing gorse, nest box maintenance and setting up new nest boxes.

Kevin Griffiths, from Friends of the Heath said: “There is always something worth seeing on the Heath. Thank you to Cheshire Wildlife Trust for running the event and to our wonderful volunteers for their time and effort.”

The Heath and the Little Heath are privately owned by the Tatton Estate and hosts events such as the Royal May Day and the United Kingdom’s largest travelling funfair. The wooded part of the Heath is leased by the Tatton Estate to the Cheshire Wildlife Trust who bring their resources and expertise in wildlife conservation.

The next events taking place on the Heath are a litter-pick on 24 September and a Conservation Work Day on 14 November – all volunteers are welcome and tools will be provided. For more information visit friendsotheath.wordpress.com
