River Wiske Tree Planting Task Days

Location: South Otterington, South Otterington, Northallerton
We need to plant over a 1000 trees along the River Wiske in North Yorkshire. These trees will provide stability along the river bank; help to alleviate flooding and provide much needed habitat for wildlife along the river corridor.

This is no small task and we need your help to get these trees planted, if you can spare a few hours on any of the planting days we have planned then we’d love to hear from you.
