Linford Lakes NR need materials for a new hibernaculum


One task to plan for is creating new hibernaculum for the front garden.

We have some pallets but we are in need of items to fill it with.

Can you have a look around and if you have any of the following items we can put them to good use if you have no need of them.

  • Strips of wood
  • Straw
  • Moss
  • Dry leaves
  • Woodchips
  • Old terracotta pots
  • Old roofing tiles
  • Bricks, preferably those with holes through them
  • Old logs
  • Bark
  • Pine cones
  • Sand
  • Soil
  • Hollow bamboo canes
  • Dead hollow stems cut from shrubs and herbaceous plants
  • A sheet of roofing felt
  • Planks of wood
  • Whatever else you can find – preferably natural materials


Please bring them along to the Task Day or Open Sunday for future use.
