Nature reserve created

This week the temporary fencing for the flood defence works has come down and with very kind cooperation from York Council, the Environment Agency and Balfour Beatty we have been able to retain a short section of the fence to form the boundary of a new nature reserve.

The fence will ensure the area remains a no-mow area and will give nature a chance to take over, adding extra habitat for wildlife. Our intention is to plant native hedging along the boundary and take down the fence in a few years when it is all established.

We will continue to post news about the nature reserve at www.leemanpark.uk/nature and if you are interested in helping to develop the area, please join us.
