This Heritage Lottery-funded project is starting to wind up following the appointment of Beth Andrews as EHT project officer and David Hutton as project manager at the Herefordshire Wildlife Trust.

Ian Fairchild has been working on producing maps of the area and both Beth and Ian are running a geological training course for staff involved in the project as a result of which we are now able to make a first call for volunteers to help with the project.   If you are interested in both ecology and geology and would be interested in working in a small team surveying pond sites then please contact the EHT office.

If you would like to find out more about the ice-age geology, but are not so interested in the ecology, there will definitely still be opportunities to be involved in surveying or perhaps in sediment coring.  One group who have already expressed interest are the Leominster U3A geology group to whom Ian is talking about the project in February with plans for a field visit in March with both Beth and Ian.
