Read All About It!

Last Friday, volunteer Jeremy joined Assistant Ranger Sam and I to install a brand new information board at Swan Lake Park. This brand new board is located by the new housing development entrance and will welcome everyone onto the site. It will also provide information about our management and what you might come across whilst exploring.

It was a long, hard day for the three of us but everyone was very pleased with the final outcome. We hope that this new sign will help our visitors and teach them something new about the wonderful Swan Lake Park.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
