Landscapes for Water: Tree Planting Day (fully booked)

Help us plant trees, restore the landscape and mitigate the effects of climate change

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

*PLEASE NOTE: ALL SPACES FOR THIS EVENT ARE NOW TAKEN*

Our partner programme Landscapes for Water is a landscape scale restoration project that's seeking to make the South Pennines more resilient for climate, nature and people. Historically the South Pennines supported many more trees than it does today and, as part of this environmental project, we are looking to recreate some of these lost wooded areas. If you fancy getting involved and helping to plant some trees, please sign up to one of tree planting mornings we are running in February. These will be running on Saturdays and be overseen by the Colne Valley Tree Society.
