Help to improve Risley Moss for visitors
5:00pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in News
A MOSSLAND rescue project is taking place on Saturday to help improve Risley Moss for visitors.
Volunteers are being sought to help preserve ‘Pestfurlong Moss’, a remnant of a lowland raised bog that used to stretch between Liverpool and Manchester and is a haven for wildlife.
Nigel Balding, of Friends of Gorse Covert Mounds, said: “Unfortunately, Pestfurlong Moss is slowly turning into woodland and being taken over by rhododendron.
“This is a chance for us to help preserve the Moss for the future.”
People are asked to help between 10.30am and 12.30pm and 1.30pm and 4pm, meeting at the site car park on Gorse Covert Road.
Pete Attwood from The Conservation Volunteers will be leading and training volunteers in woodland management.
Tools will be provided but volunteers will need suitable working footwear, clothing and food and drink.
Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
