Lye Valley is one of three specially designated conservation sites in the ‘Wild Oxford’ BBOWT project (for more information see There are two fens at Lye Valley: one to the north, off the Slade; and one to the south, by the golf course. Today we’ll work on the South Fen. It’s the kind of job that needs lots of people, so come along and lend a hand. If there’s been rain, you’ll need wellies.

You’ll need to check our weekly email for details of access to the site if you want to meet us there (sign up for the emails on the OCV web site,

We’ll provide all the tools and training and no previous experience is needed. Just remember to bring a packed lunch and wear old clothes and stout footwear.

Under-18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You don’t have to tell us that you’re coming – either meet us at one of the minibus pickup points in Oxford:

1) Outside the Lamb and Flag Pub on St. Giles at 9.20am
2) Outside Tesco on Cowley Road at 9.30am

or meet us at the task site itself if you prefer.

Check the website or the OCV weekly email for last minute details or changes, and to find out the exact location.
