Woodland Action Day

Jun 26th 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Our continuing priority is to focus on the trees that have already been planted in previous years, as they need assistance to survive. We will clear back growth from the fledgling saplings, and then mulch them with woodchip from our stockpile. There are over 5,000 young trees in the woods, so plenty of helping hands are needed! We also maintain a 1km network of paths to improve access to the woods, which local people have told us they enjoy using.

This month we will also be attending to our daisy patch, which is showing signs of suffering from bramble creep; and investigate the repair of our gazebo, for use at future events.

We meet 10am at the Dane Valley Woods HQ in Dane Valley allotments at the end of St Peters Footpath, or you can find us in the woods – we are easy to spot in our hi-viz yellow jackets!

There is no need to book – we provide all tools and safety equipment, but please wear a sturdy pair of shoes and come dressed for the weather.

All ages welcome, under 16s to be accompanied by an adult. Hot drink refreshments are provided at the end of the morning for all hard working volunteers.
