chief executive Jeremy Garside said: "Opening up the ecological assessment process to local interest groups and residents has helped provide a wider understanding of information gathered from the site."
Saltburn Gill, an ancient semi-natural Woodland, set in a deep coastal valley is one such area where a group of volunteers are now regularly supporting the work of the TVWT.
Why not join them or any of the volunteers at other TVWT nature reserves, including The Howls, in Hartlepool, Coatham Marsh, in Redcar or Brewsdale, in South Stockton, to name but a few?
"Hunt Cliff is part of the Heritage Coastline and boasts some amazing coastal geology and geomorphology," said Andrew Carter, of TVWT
On Thursday Paul Little, from TVWT, will be talking about rare water voles and the work going on in Middlesbrough to save them.
Jonathan Pounder, of TVWT, said: "These sessions will not only allow individuals and parents to find out about the wildlife that surrounds them, but also what's going on in the community around them."
For the past two years, Dr Liz Auty has been working on the biodiversity project but now the TVWT
has landed Government cash, with matched funding from Northern Rock, to complete the project and also employ another officer to extend community involvement.
Now the TVWT
is enlisting the help of children across the borough to come up with a new name for the site.
