Tree Planting & Waterblitz – Grassmoor Country Park

02-03-23 10:00 - 12:00
Grassmoor Country Park
Address: Grassmoor Country Park, Birkin Lane, Chesterfield, S42 5DA


Help us plant 50 trees as part of the Slow the Flow to the Calow scheme in Grassmoor Country Park! We’ll be planting Alder and Aspen whips that will help slow flood flows and create a small area of wet woodland habitat.   

We’ll also be investigating water quality at multiple sites in the park so that we can build up a picture of what type of pollution is found there, where it might be coming from and whether the new flood and habitat scheme can help improve water quality.

Timings: 10am-12pm

Where: Grassmoor Country Park, meeting at the south car park off Birkin Lane, S42 5DA (parking is free)

What to bring: Wellies are highly recommended as the tree planting area is wet underfoot. We will have some spares with us to borrow if you don’t have your own!
