The Environment Agency is funding the purchase and planting of around 2000 trees of 40 different species on parts of Monkmoor River Ground. The aim is to create a mix of open grassland, scrub, hedges, woodland and park trees on an area of council owned riverbank. We are looking to plant these trees in the new year, over January and February. This is a great chance to get people involved with a conservation effort that should be visible for generations. We can provide gloves, tools, etc. You just need warm clothes and food/drink if needed.
At the moment I am looking at the following potential volunteer days:
Wednesday 15th January
Sunday 19th January
Sunday 26th January
Wednesday 29th January
Sunday 2nd February
Wednesday 5th February
Wednesday 19th February
Sunday 23rd February
If you could let me know any of these which suits yourself/group and I will allocate you to certain days.
Roughly how many people if it is a group
What time you/they are available between 9:00 and 15:00
I donÆt like being too formal about it, but I do want to avoid everyone turning up at the same day and then having no help for other days!
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Thanks, and hope to see you there!
