‘The opportunity to actively engage with nature, seeing the wider landscape change and observing the detail of local species, helps me to re-focus and see what joy there is to be found in simple things.’
Among the reserves Langdyke manages or helps with are Swaddywell Pit, Etton Maxey, and Torpel Manor Field (see their website for more information).
If you have any spare time and would like to offer help you would be very welcome. For information about ‘work parties’ on the different sites please email them.
Langdyke Countryside Trust is establishing a Community Nature Reserve consisting of pledges by people to manage areas of their garden for the benefit of wildlife. Everything from a simple window box up to an entire meadow pledged will be added together. No other obligations beyond that! They will be regularly providing ideas on what you can do both in videos, articles on the website and links to other sources. Find out more on their website and watch the video below about this exciting project:
Membership of the Trust for a small annual sum brings certain benefits but is not a requirement for many activities. Specific events do have a requested contribution/donation to the Trust for non-members.
