We need more transects so where are the priorities?
The map below shows areas of Yorkshire where we really need more transects. They include the North York Moors and Clevelands Hills, the Wolds , the Magnesian limestone ridge, the Aire, Wharfe and Nidd Valleys , the coal measures and the Dark Peak. The priority areas contain suggestions for sites. Have a look and see if there is one near you or maybe you know somewhere interesting close by where you live which is within one of the priority area shown below. In which case do please be in contact with our transect co-ordinator
NB Volunteers are always needed on the Yorkshire Dales National Park and on the North York Moors
