So, here we are. The first Healing Nature blog. If you aren’t already familiar with the project, you can read more about us in this news post and in the upcoming Wildlife Durham magazine (issued three times a year to all Durham Wildlife Trust members).
It is slightly alarming to think that, as I write this, the project is simultaneously in its infancy and 6% of the way through our project timeline. It is because we have a really short timescale in which we need to achieve a lot.
Over the next 14 months we will be working with our partners at Gateshead, South Tyneside and Sunderland councils to deliver a programme of conservation work, and community engagement and education events across twenty sites in the region. The map below shows where we will be working and gives a flavour for some of the practical conservation activities in store. We will keep you informed with the exciting plans for individual sites over the coming weeks and months.
