Wetlands build aided by wildlife trust team

Evesham Editorial 7th Oct, 2021   0

LOCAL glamping and camping site Bowbrook Lodges has recently worked with the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust (WWT) to build wetlands on their site near Pershore.

Bowbrook Lodges is a local 25 acre camping and glamping site based near Pinvin, Pershore.

Richard and Matt Jaques, brothers and joint owners of the site, approached the county’s Wildlife Trust to enhance their site in order to help support wildlife and make it more attractive to visitors.

Together, they applied for support in 2019 and tree planting work commenced in the winter of 2020 with the creation of wetlands completed in spring 2021




“We planted the trees in 2020 with the help of Worcester Wildlife Trust to improve sustainability and provide a truly unique area to explore,” Richard said.

“It is now landscaped with 2,500 trees, 250 fruit trees, lakes and wetlands and a 1 mile long hard path for easy walks.”
