LICKEY Hills Society members will be treated to a presentation by Worcestershire Wildlife Trust in a bid to help restore Heathlands in the area, writes Sophie Wheeler.
The illustrated presentation – ‘Heathlands in our Area’, will be given by trust member Andrew Harris at 7.30pm on Tuesday, February 26, at the Trinity Centre, at the top of Rose Hill.
Heathlands are one of the most threatened habitats with 80 per cent being destroyed since the 19th Century.
The talk will shine a light on how the trust is handling the decline and restoration of the purple heathers and their vision for future management of the area.
Society members and guests will be treated to an introduction of the Wildlife Trust and the work that is being done in local reserves, especially in Spinneyfields, which is close to the M5 Junction 4 at Lydiate Ash.
Admission is free for society members but £2 for non-members, who are being urged to come along and get a better understanding of the endangered area surrounding them.
Light refreshments will be available throughout for everyone interested in getting a better understanding of Heathlands in their area.
