The Dormouse Project

The wildlife charity People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) and the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) released 20 breeding pairs of rare hazel dormice (Muscardinus avellanarius) into a woodland near Aysgarth in Wensleydale in the hope they would settle in to their new surroundings.

Ure River

We know how lucky we are to have the River Are on our doorsteps and the Heritage Lottery funded 'Ure River' project gives us a chance to celebrate it and ensure the river is safeguarded for years to come.
