Conservation Work Party - Clearing scrub on chalk grassland - Near Winterbourne Abbas

We shall once again be attacking the poor old gorse on this tucked-away chalk grassland bank nestling at the foot of Black Down, near Winterbourne Abbas.   In the right place, gorse is a valuable source of food and shelter for wildlife, but if we can clear some of it on this site we can give the more specialised chalk grassland flora a helping hand.  We will be working on a steep bank, so sturdy boots are the order of the day.  Tools and gloves are provided - just bring yourself and a packed lunch (if you can stay all day).   Please note that the site is quite remote and there are no facilities of any kind!

Please contact Jill Hearing for further information and to book a place:
