About this cause

OCLT seeks to protect, rejuvenate and maintain large areas of previously largely derelict land in the Ore area (principally Speckled Wood, the areas last green Lung), for the benefit of the local community and to protect animal habitat. One of the projects is connecting footpaths through the area to a larger network of cycling and walking routes (Greenway). This is an exciting challenge, working with the local council (the status of the area is defined in the local plan), the community and other local charitable organisations to clear wasteland, rejuvenate the local woods and open spaces, to provide access to local residents and groups. The task involves assistance from bodies such as The Conservation Volunteers. Fundraising is an important element of the charity's activities.
