Help feed the birds

PEOPLE can help wildlife in Hartlepool prepare for the autumn and winter by getting involved in building a new bird feeding station.

They are being invited to join members of the Wild Wednesdays volunteer team – part of the Wild Green Spaces in Hartlepool project – who will be in Burn Valley Gardens tomorrow from 10am-3pm.

The bird feeding station is to be created in the grounds of the Old Coach House at the site.

Anyone wishing to get involved should meet beside the notice board at the entrance to the Burn Valley Family Wood at the top of Elwick Road.

The three-year Wild Green Spaces in Hartlepool project aims to involve local people in a range of work to improve and develop the town’s parks and Local Nature Reserves.

It was launched following a successful bid by Hartlepool Council in partnership with the Environment Agency and the Burn Valley Project Steering Group.
