Hoe Fen’s woodland Wildlife Discovery Area occupies a ‘wild space’ on the western edge of the stately home and formal gardens of Anglesey Abbey. It covers 20 acres and over the last seven years, head gardener, Richard Todd along with Community Engagement Officer, Janet Jephcott and a team of wardens and volunteers have transformed the sight into a unique woodland wildlife area.
Over the next year, starting in April 2013, I will undertake a residency at Hoe Fen’s woodland wildlife discovery area of Anglesey Abbey in Lode, Cambridgeshire. The residency will enable me to gain a better understanding of the local natural landscape, its wildlife and methods of conservation. This will involve me working alongside staff and volunteers throughout the year assisting with a variety of seasonal activities that will engage the interest of local people, community groups, schools and families in nature teaching them ways to appreciate and manage environments for wildlife.
