Foxglove Covert Local Nature Reserve in North Yorkshire is a Site of Local Nature Conservation Importance. This beautiful 94 acre reserve is home to more than 2000 species and with a range of habitats from woodland and wetland to healthland and meadows. It really is a special place to discover and enjoy wildlife. There is strong emphasis on education at all levels and regular events are held for visitors.
Previously Foxglove Covert had a static website and an external blog using Blogger. The objectives for the new website were to promote the excellent facilities and activities at the nature reserve, gather further support for the charity, update the visual design and allow staff members to easily manage and update the website content.
A content manangement system was implemented and new sections added, highlighting the varied habitats and species on the reserve, as well as the educational activities available. Some of the features include an interactive map of reserve habitats, categorised and searchable species lists, educational activity sheets, photo galleries and e-commerce for online donations and purchases. The blog was imported within the main website and social media and RSS feeds are integrated. Full training was provided to the whole staff team on writing and preparing content for the web and using the new content management system.
The Foxglove Covert website is wind powered by Green Hosting.
