Ice Age Ponds Project
Our Ice Age Ponds Project begins in earnest this year with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The Project aims to save the area’s unique glacial ponds. These incredible heritage ponds were created around 20,000 years ago during the last Ice Age, when woolly mammoths were still roaming the area. Remarkably many of these ponds still exist today!
This exciting new project is being delivered by a partnership of local conservation organisations:
- Herefordshire Wildlife Trust
- Herefordshire Amphibian and Reptile Team
- Herefordshire and Worcestershire Earth Heritage Trust.
This project is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Thank you to players of the National Lottery for making this project possible!
