This is an exciting opportunity to help enhance the Reserve further as a special place to encourage nature and natural habitats and as a place for people to enjoy for specialist pursuits or leisure time. In turn this is a rewarding role.

Foxglove Covert is a designated Local Nature Reserve of around 100 acres of moorland edge, adjacent to Cambrai Lines at Catterick Garrison and has a remarkable mix of habitats and species. Foxglove has been developed into the gem it is today over the past 30 years.

Catterick Garrison is one of the largest military communities in the country. The land is owned by the Ministry of Defence. The Foxglove Covert Foundation manage this land on a lease specifically as a Nature Reserve. Recently a new Board has been formed to manage the Foundation following transition to a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation). There are four current Trustees and we are looking to increase numbers by two or three to help with this role.

Skills or experience required?:

We are not looking for any specific background. More an intertest in the work of the Reserve and the aptitude and attitude to help with future plans to broaden appeal to the military and wider community as well as specialist audiences.
