Reedbed Creation

Join us as we continue our reedbed restoration work around the shores of Windermere. We’ll be planting small reed plug plants within newly fenced off areas to re-establish lost reedbeds. There are three opportunities to get involved.

Please wear wellies or sturdy boots as the ground we are planting in will be soft/muddy and bring gloves if you can.
