Wildlife, Flora and the River


The documents below contain information on some of the wildlife you might see while exploring the Medlock Valley and information regarding the river.

Green spaces in East Manchester provide important habitats for a wide range of plants and animals. Some of them are easy to spot because of their size or abundance, or perhaps because they are loud, colourful or just plain curious! Other species are more difficult to discover due their rarity and lack of numbers, or because they are so small, well hidden, or simply shy around people. Most importantly, all of the different species work together, recycling waste and helping to look after the environment. Please make sure that you protect this balance by not interfering with any plants or animals when visiting the Valley.
