Wardsend Cemetery
Address: 1A Club Mill Rd, Sheffield S6 2FH, UK

Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust, DCRT and the friends of Wardsend Cemetery have teamed up to collect Data for Nature as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded Data for Nature project.

After this training course with Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust we’ll be hosting monthly bird surveys in the Cemetery and on the riverside to help collect data and monitor birdlife in the area.

Expert volunteers and beginners are both welcome. We expect volunteers who attend the training to continue to help collect data for nature over the year.

Get in touch at [email protected] for more information about the project.

    As it is coming up to the summer months, we will be looking at doing some invasive species management along the river banks throughout the catchment. This involves the identification and removal of plant species such as Himalayan Balsam that are not native to the UK, and identification of Giant Hogweed as it’s sap can be dangerous to our skin. The sap reduces the photosensitivity of our skin, making us more vulnerable to sever sunburns. It is important we learn about these different species for when we are out doing practical work.

     

    We have arranged a training session around INNS which is being delivered by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. Listed below are the details:

    Location: Potteric Carr nature reserve in Doncaster (DN4 8DB)

    When: Monday 22nd April from 1pm to 4pm

     

    The session will cover:

    • Intro to Invasive species and how to identify them
    • How to survey and record invasive non-native species
    • How to use Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s INNS Mapper to prioritise treatment in the Don Catchment
    • Overview of last year’s INNS treatment in the Don Catchment.
    • Biosecurity – What is it? Why is it important?

     

    It is free to attend and we will provide refreshments. We can also cover the cost of travel and will have expense forms available to fill out on the day. Simply ensure you keep hold of a travel receipt if it is public transport, or the mileage if it is by car.
