Practical Conservation Task Day - Kirkstall Valley

Would you like to get stuck into some outdoor conservation work?

Join us for a day of practical conservation and reserve management tasks at Kirkstall Valley. There’s always plenty to do whatever the season; wildflower restoration and removing invasive species to name a couple. This urban nature reserve has a mixture of habitats including meadow and scrub that need to be maintained for the wildlife and public.
