Over the last twelve months we have been running a series of free workshops as part of the Skell Valley Project.
The Skell Valley Project is an innovative, four-year scheme co-led by the National Trust and Nidderdale AONB to rejuvenate the 12 miles of the River Skell in North Yorkshire. Through this £2.5 million project, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and others, the project will work with local farmers, landowners and volunteer groups. Together, they will improve the landscape’s resilience to climate change, help nature to thrive, protect and conserve heritage and increase people’s access to green spaces following the coronavirus pandemic.
Our next workshop will take place on Friday 26 May (7pm-9.30pm approx) at the Workhouse Museum & Garden and will include a short talk about bats, a look at plants to encourage bats into our gardens, and the chance to help construct bat boxes to be sited in local nature reserves. Following this there’ll be a chance to go into the museum garden with our bat experts and bat detectors to listen and look out for bats, weather permitting.
There are just twenty places on this workshop, to take part please email [email protected]
This workshop is funded by the Skell Valley Project and The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
