Conservation Working Party – 7th December
The next working party will be held on Saturday 7th December. Anyone interested in joining in should be at the Scout Hut, Elder Road at 10am and things should finish by about 12.30.
The main tasks will be to carry out some scrub clearance in the wooded areas alongside the stream and to undertake some bank/stream management to maintain and improve the health of the stream. The scrub clearance work is carried out on rotation over three/four years. It allows light to reach the woodland floor, enabling a wider variety of wild flowers to flourish.
Conservation Working Party – 2nd November
The first full Conservation Working Party of the Autumn season will be held on the morning of Saturday 2nd November 2019, at 10am. The main task will be to carry out some scrub clearance in the wooded areas alongside the stream. This work is carried out on a rotation over three/four years. It allows light to reach the woodland floor and for a wider variety of wild flower plants to flourish. With the support and guidance from Dorset Wildlife Trust, our work is helping to conserve the best of what is already there and make the stream and its environs even more wildlife friendly. Our work over the past years has certainly enhanced the riverside area for plants, birds and animals.
