Canal & River Trust manages 63 of the UK’s most important wildlife sites - Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). They are particularly important for rare water plants and animals such as water voles, native crayfish, dragonflies, otters and even water shrews. They range from canals in urban areas, to reservoirs and even disused rural canal arms.
Through the Trust’s ‘Making Special Places For Nature’ Project, 10 key sites have been identified for attention this year, supported by the generosity from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
A Canal bank section, south of Drakeholes, near Bawtry, will be improved with planted coir roll structures to protect the bank from further erosion and improve local biodiversity. It is a fantastic opportunity to experience learning new outdoor skills, help enhance the environment and be part of a friendly team. Tools and equipment will be provided along with refreshments and some informal training
