Conservation work on the reserve.

We will be coppicing some hazel trees and clearing the vegetation from behind the entrance gate at the car park. The materials cut from the hazels will be weaved and used to build the walls of a habitat pile that will store the cut vegetation. Hopefully some animals like hedgehogs, snakes and insects will find this a nice place to spend the winter. We will have a break for squash and biscuits.

If your child has gardening gloves please bring them (we have a limited amount if not), also they need to wear wellies or sensible footware, trousers and long sleeved tops.
