Wild Wednesday - Deepdale Conservation
Wednesday 12 January 2022
Meet at 8pm and finish about 3pm

from planting trees to restoring hedgerows, managing our woodland and more.
All abilities and levels of experience are welcome – if you’re not sure
what you’re doing, we’ll show you – but if you’ve done this kind of thing
before, we can really use your skills!

wear anything you might regret getting dirty or damaged.
