Management for Wildlife
At the top of the park we aim to have a more wild area in comparison to the more formal bottom half. This is because wildlife needs to have untouched, diverse wild areas to thrive as an ecosystem. However it still has to be managed in some ways.
• Keep invasive species such as bracken, rose bay willow herb and brambles under control.
• Remove saplings that seed themselves in open ground.
• Keep paths clear for access.
• Introduce native plants to attract wildlife and protect those already there.
Our horticulture group keep wildlife in mind when planting and other work at the bottom of the park.
We all work together to provide a rich environment and haven for wildlife.
If you also have an interest in wildlife we would appreciate any help or advice that you could give.
