Conservation work (26 October). Upgang Ravine.
« on: March 08, 2017, 01:33:08 pm »
Conservation work in Upgang Ravine. Exact meeting point, Thursday 26 October, 10.00 a.m. Notes. Cutting and raking the grassland over the past 4 years has resulted in clear improvement of the special flora and insects of this bank. The results have been very rewarding, with the rarer species thriving, and plants such as early purple orchids appearing in the cleared margins. Please bring tools (rake, shears, pruners) and gardening gloves. Refreshments are also recommended. The bank is steep and uneven, so bring suitable footwear.  Cars can be parked at the end of Upgang Lane [NZ883119] or brought into the Ravine using the access road by the golf course on Sandsend Road down the Cleveland Way. It would be useful to know if you plan to come, and what tools you can bring. Contact. Wendy English [plants<at>].
