HLF - Moments with Trees
Moments with Trees is a two-year project commencing April 2017 funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) focused on the trees and woodland of Nene Park. Thanks to National Lottery players, visitors will be able to learn more about the history and beauty of the Parks trees through a series of trails and guided walks, whilst volunteers will have the opportunity to develop tree identification and management skills. Tree-themed activities for children will run during the summer months and project updates and tree-facts will be available on social media channels.
Trees are a significant feature of Nene Park and have a real story to tell about the history of the landscape. The good management of trees is also key to the future of Nene Park. This project aims to address both the past and future of trees in the Park, by connecting with local schools, our Volunteers, visitors and a range of partners. This work will help to reveal the past, celebrate the present and shape the future of Nene Park trees.
We have created a dedicated Project Officer role to manage this project, who will be highly visible out in the Park and local community by hosting a range of tree related activities. These will include physical activities such as volunteering opportunities for tree planting and management, 'tricks with trees', tree gateways around the Park and the return of the Park photography exhibition. A significant element of the project activities will also be focused on sharing knowledge about trees and their heritage. These will include workshops, research projects, guided walks, self-led trails and digital content including project videos.
