Our projects have the dual aim of creating attractive places which the community can enjoy, and which are carefully planned to attract a diverse range of wildlife to them.
To date, we have created a new woodland, an area of managed scrubland, a wildflower meadow, a wetland area and restored two ponds.
We have improved our rights of way network by the replacement of stiles with more accessible alternatives, laid new drainage systems and new surfacing where possible.
To ensure a successful outcome, our projects are conducted with professional partners. We have worked successfully with BTCV, Derbyshire Countryside Service,Environmental Development Manager SDDC, Open Spaces Officer SDDC, British Waterways, The Environment Agency, Lowland Derbyshire Biodiversity Partnership, Wild-Derby Partnership, and our landowners.
We also recieve considerable support from our local authorities, Findern Parish Council, South Derbyshire District Council and Derbyshire County Council and Safer Neighbourhood Partnership, who are very helpful and supportive.
We are very keen to work with our youngsters. Successful projects ahve been conducted with Derbyshire Youth Service, 1st Findern Brownies and the pupils of Derby Moor School.
We are currently planning to create a new pond at the eastern end of Cardales Wildflower Meadow and to create water vole habitats along the Trent and Mersey Canal.
Our projects are entirely financed through donation, fundraising and grant funding.
