Our Roots of Rockingham project would like to offer you a chance for you to help them conserve the remaining Adder population of the Rockingham Forest, the last great stronghold in Northamptonshire; a regionally important population.

Back from the Brink are teaming up with Forestry England volunteers to clear an important glade for basking adders.

This vital habitat work takes place during the colder months when adders are safely dormant underground and ensures that plenty of light can reach the woodland floor when they re-emerge in spring to bask and warm up before finding a mate.

Hot drinks and biscuits, also known as volunteer fuel, will be supplied in great abundance!

Free event but booking required - they don't want to run out of biscuits!
