Visiting Carbrook Ravine with the Wildlife Trust

Friday, June 29, 2012

The Wildlife Trust for Sheffield and Rotherham promote the conservation, protection and improvement of the natural environment in the area. There are a number of green spaces in Sheffield Heeley constituency, including Carbrook Ravine, which local MP Meg Munn recently visited with members of the Trust.

Meg met the new Chief Executive of the Trust, Liz Ballard, and took a tour of Carbrook Ravine with Reserves Manager Annabel Kennedy.  The Ravine is located at the eastern end of Manor Estate, covering just over 16 hectares it is home to a variety of different habitats, including grassland, woodland and wetland. As a focus of community participation it is a great place to motivate young minds to take an active interest in the environment and anyone can volunteer to become involved with its management as part of the Reserve Advisory Group.

The area does suffer from litter and vandalism; however this problem has improved over the years with help from the reserve managers and volunteers from the community. The numerous paths around the reserve let visitors admire the scenery, and provide a place where wildlife can thrive. Meg enjoyed a walk through the meadow and viewed some of the open air artwork created by local children.

Meg said:

“Carbrook Ravine, along with other nature reserves in the constituency, is fantastic. We are very lucky to have such beautiful scenery and wildlife on our doorstep. The reserve managers do a great job of maintaining the land with the help of volunteers, and it would be good to see more people getting actively involved in learning about and looking after their local environment.”
