Derry
Event:
Step into spring at Burntollet Wood
Date: Sat 20th March '10
Details: Nature lovers are invited to don welly boots for a special afternoon of tree planting. The Woodland Trust's Burntollet Wood - in the beautiful Faughan Valley, just outside Londonderry - awaits you on Saturday 20 March, from 12 to 4pm.
A guided nature trail offers tree planters the chance to discover the natural treasures of Burntollet Wood, while bird expert Dot Blakely will share a wealth of bird identification tips.
Visitors might also independently explore the beauty of nearby Ness Country Park. This designated Area of Special Scientific Interest is rich in both woodland and wildlife, including the endangered red squirrel. A new pathway now links Burntollet to the Country Park, giving visitors access to almost 9 kilometres of woodland and riverside walks.
The Woodland Trust has ambitious plans to plant over 36,000 native trees at Burntollet Wood. As the young trees grow, they will buffer the nearby precious ancient woods which dot the banks of the Burntollet River. And within as little as 12 years, today's bare land will be transformed into flourishing woodland - a fantastic natural resource for the benefit of both people and wildlife.
This event is part of the Trust's 'Tree For All' campaign. Funded by Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Tree For All gives both adults and children the chance to get close to nature.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone - from both sides of the border - to roll their sleeves up and make a personal, lasting contribution to Burntollet Wood, while enjoying the stunning beauty of the Faughan Valley landscape," says the Trust's Gregor Fulton. "Tree planting got underway last November, when members of the public and schoolchildren rolled their sleeves up to plant the first of thousands of trees. We hope that both local people and visitors will join us once again, and look forward to showing everyone the results of our efforts to-date."
Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and bring welly boots or sturdy footwear (and a spade, if you have one!). All children must be accompanied by an adult. For further information visit www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/burntollet or telephone the Woodland Trust on 028 9127 5787.
The tree planting is in keeping with BBC Breathing Places; a partnership between the BBC and conservation organisations which aims to connect people, including children, with nature.
