Practical Conservation Task Day - Potteric Carr

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

Join us for a day of practical conservation and reserve management tasks at the fantastic Potteric Carr Nature Reserve, a stretch of wetland habitat near Doncaster famed for wetland birds, including bitterns and marsh harriers. This is one of the largest reserves the trust manages, and the location of a visitor centre, with a network of paths requiring maintenance to ensure visitors continue to enjoy the site.
