Sculthorpe Moor 10th Birthday Reed Bed Appeal
We need your help to raise £100,000 for the next 10 years of Sculthorpe Moor’s evolutionOver the 10 years that Sculthorpe Moor has been open to the public it has changed immensely, benefiting a whole range of plants and animals including birds of prey and owls. We now need to begin the next phase of our development by improving one of our key habitats and enhancing our visitor experience.
Our inland reed bed is a rare habitat in Norfolk and is key to many of our most iconic species like marsh harrier, bittern and kingfisher … but we need to restore it to peak condition and introduce more dykes and reed fringe which will increase biodiversity. Our plan will also provide for fantastic new views from the Whitley Hide.
We also want to build 300 metres of new boardwalk along the river path to enable easy access to the entire site for all our visitors. And we want to build a tower hide, accessed by a boardwalk through the tree canopy to give panoramic views across the restored reed bed and the beautiful River Wensum.
We have a great record of delivering tremendous results with the funds that we have been given previously via a huge volunteer contribution to our projects – we only use contractors where we absolutely have to. Every penny you can spare will help towards our target. Please take one of our Reed Bed Appeal leaflets which give details of the various ways to donate.
With your generosity, the expertise of our staff and the efforts of our volunteers, we can make Sculthorpe Moor an even better place for wildlife and visitors.
