February 2015 Nature Trail Visioning Session

The Ancoats Canal Project have been awarded some grant funding to develop a Nature Trail Vision to serve as a guiding document for our future volunteer activities; the idea being to gear a chunk of our future events towards implementing specific elements of the Vision. This is a project that is being worked on in conjunction with Groundwork.

The Visioning Session on 8th February was the first Nature Trail community event, and it was all about introducing the project and taking a walk around the canals in order to get feedback on what local residents would like to see included in the trail.  The session generated lots of interesting discussion and ideas, and highlighted several sites where there is scope to carrry out small projects focused on planting and encouraging more wildlife in and around the canals and the marina.  A great way to kick off our activities for 2015!
