On Saturday 31st Jan on a wonderfully bright but chilly day 10 volunteers gave up their time to work with Kevin Date, Bute Park Community Ranger and Julia Sas, Bute Park Manager, to create nesting/habitat piles in woodland to the west of Blackweir Playing Fields.
Branches and twigs from a fallen tree were cut up and transferred into piles, which over time will make great homes for a variety of wildlife including birds and insects.
If you would like to get involved in a future work day check out the Events Calendar to see when the next one is planned.
Work Days are typically held once a month and provide people with the opportunity to meet others and make a valuable contribution to the maintenance and management of Bute Park. On the day, people meet at the Secret Garden Café at 11am and work until lunchtime. Tools and gloves are provided but people should dress with their own appropriate clothing and footwear. These are informal, fun and friendly events where everyone is welcome! If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help.
All conservation work days are run in association with the Friends of Bute Park
