Here in Nottinghamshire, we’re lucky to have one of the world’s most famous forests on our doorstep.
We hear a lot about saving the planet but what can you do to help nature and wildlife in Notts?
At the Sherwood Forest Trust, they love to get people hands on with nature.
Here are five ways you can join in:
- Join in one of the Trust’s practical heathland conservation days at Sherwood Heath. It’s fun, it’s free and it’ll keep you fit! Visit www.facebook.com/SherwoodHeathSSSI or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Landowner? Want to plant trees? Find out if you’re eligible for free help to plant, grow and manage a piece of new woodland; visit www.sherwoodforest.org.uk/trees-for-climate-calling-all-landowners.
- Volunteer at the Trust’s Community Tree Nursery near Sherwood Pines Forest Park, sowing, watering, tending and growing British trees from locally collected seed. Email email@example.com for details.
