Reserve Maintenance @ Aston Rowant NNR, South Oxfordshire | Stokenchurch | England | United Kingdom

Our first visit of the year to this National Nature Reserve in the Chilterns which commands extensive views across the Oxford plain. Tasks at this time of year usually involve coppicing woodland, or tackling the hawthorn, bramble and scrub that encroach on the chalk grassland slopes.

Make sure you’re on the OCV mailing list for detailed information nearer the day. We’re always looking for volunteers who might lead tasks, indeed without leaders we can’t keep going, and we’re significantly short of volunteers prepared to lead and drive at the moment. If we can’t find more leaders and drivers over the next couple of months it’s likely that we’ll have to start cancelling tasks, which would be a great shame given that we have more requests for work than we have Sundays in the year. So if you can help out have a chat with a task leader or driver, or contact Phil Hunter via tasks@ocv.org.uk . At Aston Rowant we always work under the guidance of one of the Reserve wardens, so today would be a great opportunity to try it out.
