Bernie D'Arcy (Living Landscape Manager) has been working for Avon Wildlife Trust for 12 years. She has shared responsibility for the management of the Trust's nature reserves and delivers landscape scale projects across the North Somerset Levels and Moors and the Mendips.

Avon Wildlife Trust and Bristol Avon Rivers Trust (BART) are working collaboratively to deliver and promote a catchment-based approach to enhancing the natural capital of the Land Yeo river and its surrounding landscape. The river Land Yeo is a 20km river within the North Somerset Streams sub-catchment and feeds the Tickenham, Nailsea and Kenn Moor SSSI and the Severn Estuary SSSI/SAC/SPA. The Land Yeo river sits within the North Somerset Levels and Moors (NSLM), a hugely important coastal wetland habitat, including 1160ha of peatland. Crossed by a series of rivers, the area is drained by an extensive network of waterways and ditches.
YACWAG is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
