Recycled Hedge...

The family volunteer team struck again yesterday - doing another great job of an important task at Wicken Fen. 

This time the mission was to plant a new hedge by the car park at Wicken Fen, to finish off the new path way and surface area around the toilets. There was a conservation element as well; before the hedge could be planted the trees needed to be dug up from the ganges field behind the visitor centre. This meant we got rid of invading hawthorn scrub in the field where we don't want it to grow and re-used the saplings in a hedge where we do want hawthorn to grow and wildlife will benefit from both. 

We also set the volunteers the additional challenge of building the tow trug they needed to move everything around in first!
