Our work

Heather moorland at Brimham Rocks, Nidderdale, North Yorkshire

Our conservation projects on heather moorland 

We're home to three rare species of heather including ling heather, bell heather and cross-leaved heath. These plants have helped us achieve the status of Site of Special Scientific Interest meaning the work we do here to preserve our moorland habitat is important on a world-wide scale.
