FOLLOWING the success of the first practical voluntary conservation project in the woodlands at the old zoo site in Bideford, there are plans for another.Bideford Town Council, in association with the Coast and Countryside Service, is holding another scrub-clearing session there on February 15, starting at 10am.It is proposed to designate the woodland site as a Local Nature Reserve and secure its future as a wildlife haven.The project day will include the removal of invasive laurel from areas of the site and the erection of bat and bird boxes ready for the breeding season.All are welcome to attend, but it is useful to book a place to make sure that sufficient tools are provided.
