Visit to Ripon City Wetlands: a recently restored quarry reserve


Ripon City Wetlands, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's newest reserve, opened to the public on 4th May 2019. Jono Leadley, who has been closely involved with the restoration, will lead a walk around this restored quarry. This event is organised by the Yorkshire and Humber Section Committee.


Event Leader: Jono Leadley, Regional Manager (North) Yorkshire Wildlife Trust

The reserve already has a wide range of wildlife present. The restoration has been carefully planned to maximise the wildlife value of the quarry. Using knowledge gained from the restoration of sites such as North Cave Wetlands, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has been able to work with the quarry operators as the quarry has been restored.
