Come along and help us make a real difference to this important Site of Special Scientific Interest, Orton Moss. Despite its name the site is a mixture of wet grassland and woodland. We will be working to reduce the amount of non-native sycamore and beech in the woodland, as well as opening up and restoring areas of herb-rich wet grassland. We will also do some fencing and access improvement work. Please wear outdoor clothing and bring a packed lunch. Children under 16 years of age are welcome if accompanied by an adult.
