Champions of Sherwood

Just weeks after announcing that it had successfully raised the funds needed to purchase land at Holme Pierrepoint to create the largest nature reserve in Rushcliffe by extending its much loved Skylarks Nature Reserve, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, the county's largest locally based nature conservation charity has set itself the ambitious target of raising £1million to restore key areas of the Sherwood Forest Landscape. The Wildlife Trust is establishing a Sherwood Forest Restoration Fund to help care for and restore areas of heathland, grassland and woodland in Sherwood Forest and has made the famous Forest its priority for the next five years.

Speaking about the charity's ambition and commitment to Sherwood Forest, Wildlife Trust Chief Executive John Everitt said: " Ask anyone across the world what they associate with Nottinghamshire and it will be Sherwood Forest and Robin Hood, yet for too long not enough has been done to protect, enhance and celebrate this historic landscape. Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is committed to protecting the wildlife of Sherwood Forest and through our ambitious Sherwood Forest Restoration Fund we believe that we can work with partners to restore and reconnect Sherwood's fragmented landscape.

Anyone wishing to support the Wildlife Trust's efforts to protect Sherwood Forest can help by becoming a member or by making a donation to the Restoration Fund via JustGiving
