Skills Builder2 - week 2

Back on the Roaches this week carrying on with footpath restoration. Some of the routes over the top have become very spread out so we were landscaping areas with natural vegetation and rocks to encourage walkers to stay on one path and avoid eroding wider moorland areas.

Skills Builder - week 7

All about the Rot boxes this week!! We spent Thursday and Friday putting Rot boxes up in the beautiful Cotton Dell Nature Reserve owned by Staffordshire Wildlife Trust. You may have seen some of these boxes - there's some at Deep Hayes and Tittesworth so far too.

Skills Builder - week 6

Busy this week helping to manage a woodland on Thursday by thinning trees to let sunlight reach the woodland floor. This should mean there are lots more plants able to grow because of increased light levels and this will be good for wildlife such as insects, small mammals and birds.

Skills Builder - week 3

This week the Thursday group did some vegetation management at Severn Trent's Tittesworth Reservoir and built habitat piles for wildlife. Some of the group coppiced some Hazel stakes ready for future hedge laying in the next few weeks.
