Portal Woodlands Conservation Group

The working party volunteers have taken a break over the summer period; they did, however, complete one very special task.

In August, a tree was planted in the memory of Katie Webb, a much-missed young member of the group, by what she called the ‘Fire Engine’ log which amazingly has survived for more than two decades. The ceremony and unveiling was well attended by some of Katie’s friends and family. The tree chosen was an Apricot Queen, a variety of rowan (mountain ash) that will develop orange berries, Katie’s favourite colour. The tree is a British native rowan and the berries should provide a delicious treat for hungry birds and other local wildlife.

Unfortunately the woodlands did not have a summer break, so there are plenty of jobs to do. If you would like to help then please get in touch. Here are some dates for the diary; Volunteer Work Mornings, available to all ages, are on Sunday 15th October and Saturday 18th November from 10am to noon. They meet at the Education Area.

Nature Explorers (11-18 year olds) is on Saturday 18th November from 9-11am. To book a place, send an email. Nature Watch Club (5-11 year olds) is to be confirmed.

New volunteers of all ages and abilities are always welcome. No experience needed.
