The Riddy Wood Project
Project Category: Other
The Riddy Wood Project is a brand new enterprise by the Bushcraft Education team to restore an area of semi-natural ancient woodland to it’s former glory. The wood has been unmanaged for many years which has lead to it’s deterioration in terms of biodiversity and it’s sustainability as a woodland. If we don’t re-start a coppicing regime in the wood it won’t be long before the beautiful woodland flowers are all shaded out by mature trees and then after that those trees will be the only thing left with no younger trees to replace them.
But managing the woodland is only a small part of our plan we want to give everyone a chance to experience this management. woodland management, especially coppicing is a traditional countryside skill that we would like to share with you. We have linked the range of courses and activities we can provide to the school curriculum at all levels and for all age groups, history, science, geography, physical education will all be covered in the activities we can provide. Scout groups, colleges, families, experts, amateurs and people of every ability and age are welcome to get involved.
We look forward to seeing you.
