Many Lancashire farms have a pond at their field boundaries or in a quiet corner; these are often overgrown and neglected. Helen Greaves came to tell the Science Group how these lifeless ponds may be restored to health in partnership with local farmers to improve biodiversity and aid wildlife conservation. Helen is a great enthusiast for this work, this came across strongly in her talk with the result that many in the audience are now much more interested in what can be done in this area. We expect shortly some “advertising material” which will tell us how we can volunteer and get more involved: so watch this space!
