End of season workparty 12th April
This is the last official workparty of the 2011-12 season.
We are scheduled to make the final breakthough between Down Grange Meadow and The Old Hdgerow. We have been planning for some time to establish a desirable habitat link between these two sites as it has become clear that for butterflies their lifecycle is based on moving from the hedgerow in winter through to the meadow by full Summer.
To aid this linkage we are cutting and rejuvenating the hedgerow line by the pathway and promoting elm and ash growth through to the meadow. This gives us another opportunity to practice our dead hedging skills.
