Conservation Volunteers: Reserve Maintenance @ Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve
Feb 24 all-day
Conservation Volunteers: Reserve Maintenance @ Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve | Aston Rowant | England | United Kingdom

An early Spring visit to this National Nature Reserve in the Chilterns, owned and managed by Natural England. You’ll recognise the landscape if you’ve ever travelled towards London on the M40. Indeed, you’ll see up close the chalk geology that determines the character of the reserve and its fauna and flora as you drive through the immense cutting in the hillside. Today we’ll be helping the wardens care for the grassland, or the woods and paths that sit on top of the chalk. As usual, everyone’s welcome! This is a big site so watch out for the weekly email for precise details as to the location of today’s task.

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.

Conservation Volunteers: Scrub Control @ Swyncombe Estate | Swyncombe | England | United Kingdom

Swyncombe Estate consists of over 600 acres of high, mature beech woodland and chalk grassland in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding National Beauty. In recent years we’ve cut scrub on the exposed spur of Sliding Hill, but the exact location of today’s work is still to be decided at the time of writing – so watch this space! You’ll find the details in the email from the task leader that will be sent via the mailing list sometime in the week preceding the task.

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.
