About 30 scouts and volunteers from Felmingham, near North Walsham, are helping to conserve an area rich in diverse wildlife.
A combination of wet and dry open heathland, fen, and woodland, the 40-acre Bryant's Heath site is home to several rare plants that are now uncommon in East Anglia. It was designated a Site of Special Scientific Importance (SSSI) by Natural England.

Felmingham Parish Council preserves Bryant's Heath and vice-chairman Neil Thrush said: "As part of our management programme, a party of volunteers battle to clear the open areas by cutting back the gorse and bracken, and stump treatment to woody species such as willow and birch."
Structure-flex, based in Holt Road, Cromer, donated two 6x8ft purpose-built sheets to enable the team to drag any debris to sites for burning.
Paul Reeve, managing director at Structure-flex, said: "We produced two drag-sheets from off-cuts left over from the manufacture of trailer curtains."
