Plants on the Edge

We’re delighted to be partnering with Teesdale Special Flora Trust in this exciting project funded by the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund through the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The Trust was set up to continue the work of the inspiring and renowned botanist Dr Margaret Bradshaw who, at the age of 96, still leads walks, oversees monitoring and surveying activity and gives talks on the ‘Teesdale Assemblage’ – a collection of rare alpine plants unique to Upper Teesdale and threatened with decline as a result of climate change. 

We are hosting Volunteer and Engagement Officer Naomi Priestley, who’s leading on schools workshops, a series of public talks and a touring exhibition.

Thank you to our generous Funders:
