Conservation Work Party at Orton Moss Nature Reserve

Come and help us make a difference to this important Site of Special Scientific Interest. We will be working to restore areas of herb-rich wet grassland by putting up fencing and gates so we can graze the site with organic longhorn cattle from the Trust's Gosling Sike farm.
