Come and join us and help plant new trees at the Countess of Chester Country Park.
You'll help us plant some of the first trees that are part of the new Northern Forest
– and you'll help mark the 25th anniversary of The Mersey Forest.
The Countess of Chester Country Park is located on a former landfill site next to the Countess of Chester Hospital, which was closed in the 1970s. It now provides paths and trails for walking, running and cycling, plus a range of habitats for wildlife. Woodland on the site is being expanded as part of a major partnership project.
The tree planting is supported by the Land Trust, Cheshire West and Chester Council, The Conservation Volunteers, Friends of the Countess of Chester Country Park and The Mersey Forest. We'd like to thank Councillor Matt Bryan for his ongoing commitment to the development of the park.
The event takes place at The Countess of Chester Country Park on Saturday, March 2 at 11am.
