Event details

Sun, 17/12/2017 - 10:30am - 3:30pm

We'll be coppicing and brash-burning along the disused railway line to maintain an open ride for butterflies. This will encourage the diverse woodland ground flora to proliferate and keep the footpath open for visitors.

This is the last Smardale work party until after Christmas - bring spuds or other fire offerings for a celebratory skoff.

 

Booking is required. Call 01539 816300 or mail@cumbriawildlifetrust.org.uk to reserve a place.
