The Lost Woodland Appeal
Wednesday 15th August
Help us turn back the clock 1000 years...to restore 10 acres of LOST ancient woodland.
This week we launch a brand new fundraising initiative- The Lost Woodland Appeal!
Treswell Wood Nature Reserve - one of England’s finest ancient woodlands - has a piece missing! Help us raise £15,000 to unlock a £65,000 grant - to buy the first 10 acres of the missing piece.
What is the Lost Woodland? - about Treswell's 'Missing Piece'
We have a vision for expanding Treswell Wood, near Retford, and we are asking for your help.
Take a look at the map of this nature reserve (above) - at the moment it is partially divided into two halves - broken up by an agricultural field.
We finally have the chance to take the first steps to filling in this missing piece! Please help us raise £15,000 - this will unlock a £65,000 grant - so we can buy the first 10 acres of this gap, enclosed on 3 sides by the nature reserve. Currently grassland, the new area will be managed as part of the existing wood with natural regeneration of trees, as well as a large traditional wild flower meadow.
