Harrow is very lucky to have a number of wild open spaces that are great refuges for nature as well as being a wonderful resource for people. The largest are spread across the green belt in the north of the borough, but there are also lovely sites in the south. Stephen will introduce the sites managed by volunteers from the Harrow Nature Conservation Forum, with some lovely photographs! He will introduce some of the fascinating wildlife found on Harrow sites, some of them rare and of national importance. He will explain why the sites cannot be simply left alone but need active management to maintain and improve biodiversity, and describe how volunteers work with Harrow Council to achieve these objectives.
