Practical Conservation and Volunteer Days
In accordance with the dormant winter season, we’ll be carrying out most of our active habitat management between October and March.
Coppicing and tree felling will maintain the structural layers of the wood on which much of our wildlife depends. Cutting in discrete blocks means minimal disturbance to the rest of the wood and results in a mosaic of different growth, much like a 3D patchwork quilt. The wood is put to its best use as raw material for coppice crafts and green woodwork.
The volunteer days are a chance to help with practical conservation in the woods and around the Field Trail. Join the small group of people that make a huge contribution to the new projects and maintenance work on site, with plenty of tea and coffee as an extra incentive!
If you would prefer to help at Bore Place on midweek days, please contact Commonwork (firstname.lastname@example.org). Practical conservation is on-going, every week through the year.
Please contact me for further information and details of how to get involved.
