Settle College boost their biodiversity!

March 25, 2010

Chris Lodge, our Woodlands Officer, had an especially green St Patrick’s day when he helped some Year 9, 10 and 11 students at Settle College to plant trees.

The College aims to increase biodiversity on their school site by providing a woodland habitat for wildlife. 30 Saplings of Hornbeam, Silver birch and Rowan were donated to pupils of the school by the Woodland Trust & Chris supplied the valuable expertise on how to plant them.

Kieren Bathers (Year11) said, “It’s been great fun to plant the trees and even better to think that I’ve left a lasting impact on Settle College”.

The tree planting team (L-R): Peter Middleton, Nathan Webster, Jack Northropp, Amy Davies, Rosie Parker, Mrs Lodge, Laura Jubb, Kieren Bathers, Jackie Atkinson, Joe Lister, Miss Harper.
