The group’s aim is to promote the maintenance and conservation of the environment within the Harrogate area and especially the area known as the Pinewoods, situated between the Valley Gardens and Harlow Carr Gardens, and such other areas within Harrogate District which the charity may feel falls within its remit.
We also work to promote and encourage the conservation of the natural habitat of wildlife in the area and to advance the education of the public in the use of the woodlands by encouraging them to participate in the management of the woods. A copy of the 2018 to 2028 Management Plan can be downloaded here.
To date we have reinstated footpaths, erected fingerposts & information boards and provided a binocular to enhance the view of the Pinewoods panorama. Our main work however is the continuous enhancement of the woods, planting trees and bulbs and erecting bird & bat boxes.
