The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust (YWT) is a charity dedicated to conserving, protecting, and restoring wildlife and wild places in Yorkshire. Their vision is for a Yorkshire that is abundant in wildlife, with more people having a genuine and meaningful connection with nature. As we’re Gold Members of YWT, we support them both financially, and by getting our hands dirty and completing practical projects within our local community.
On Wednesday 27th September, our staff worked with YWT to help manage one of the many meadows at Rothwell Country Park in Leeds.
Our team were tasked with removing excess cuttings from the meadow to help wildflowers outcompete the overgrown grass. This will allow more people to access the meadow, and also help the flowers to grow meaning bees can pollinate easier.
We’d like to say thank you to Elspeth, Peter & Harry from YWT for their help and guidance on the day, and a big thanks to the team of volunteers from Symphony!
We’re looking forward to supporting our local wildlife again at our next YWT workday.
