I’m now managing Two Gates Primary School wood, Slaithwaite. As part of that I’m working with students representatives from every class – ‘Green Club’. They are going to help with some of the work, monitor wildlife and develop their own projects around my management plan for the woods. My main aims are to encourage the use and understanding of the wood ; to manage it sustainably as a working wood that can provide the school with resources for fencing, play equipment, seating, bean sticks etc.
The picture is my plan (survey) of the woods.
Last night was my first session. It was great to be in the woods getting the kids excited about the them.
