Penistone Station Wildflower Reserve Volunteer Day

Saturday, 4th February 10.00am- 4.00pm At the new Penistone Station wildflower nature reserve

The last of the young trees and scrub that were to be felled have now been felled by Barnsley Council’s Countryside Rangers acting for Penistone Area Council’s Clean and Tidy’ initiative, and it’s time to turn all the cut woody material into ‘habitat piles’ for the benefit of wee beasties such as hedgehogs and beetles.  This also allows direct sunlight to get to the grasses and allow wildflowers to flourish in the spring.

Volunteers can join at any time during the day and should bring old clothing, waterproofs, stout footwear and a packed lunch – tools, gloves and drinks will be provided
