    There’s a definite feeling of seasonal change in the air as the Rangers patrol the sites we manage across Cheshire East. The unsettled weather comes at a time when the Rangers begin their conservation management planning for the months ahead.

    As autumn and winter set in the habitat management work kick up a gear. These quieter months, for wildlife, mean that any work undertaken will cause less disturbance so you will often see Rangers and contractors on site undertaking large projects.

    On top of this work, the Countryside Ranger Service have some spooktacular events for you to sign up for this month.

    Take a look below for all the Ranger Service events taking place across Cheshire East this October and Halloween season!
