Practical Conservation Task Day - Sprotbrough Flash


Sprotbrough Flash Nature Reserve,

Sprotbrough Flash is half a mile south of Sprotbrough village.

You can park just off the road on Nursery Lane next to the river - please note that this can get very busy. From here it is a two minute walk along the towpath to the nature reserve.
Would you like to get stuck into some outdoor conservation work?

Join us for a day of practical conservation and reserve management tasks at Sprotbrough Flash Nature Reserve. There’s always plenty to do whatever the season; clearing paths, mowing, raking, to name a few. The nature reserve has a mixture of habitats to manage including limestone grassland, wetlands and paths that need to be maintained for the public.
