Mardale mountain meadow planting day
Since March 2017, the Alpine Garden Society has been supporting an exciting conservation project at RSPB Haweswater in the Lake District. The project is dedicated to restoring native alpines to the fells around Haweswater reservoir. We’re proud to be one of four partners involved, alongside the RSPB, United Utilities and Natural England. This month you have the chance to give a helping hand by planting plugs into the Mardale Mountain Meadow enclosure.
When: 23rd September, 9.30 am to 3pm. Meet at Mardale Head Car Park (Penrith, Bampton, CA10 2RP) for a short induction at 9.30am with Warden Spike Webb and Tree Nursery Officer Jo Chamberlain. You are welcome to stay the whole day (until around 3pm) or leave earlier. What to bring: Suitable clothing and footwear, packed lunch and water. If attendees have their own trowel and gardening gloves they can bring, this would be helpful. If you are planning to attend, please send Spike an email to let him know. Email: Spike.Webb@rspb.org.uk
