EuCan Conservation Work Party

Thursday 15 March 2018 09:30 - 15:30

Activity: We are carrying out practical conservation management on several downland sites in the Cerne Valley.  The work involves cutting small trees and bushes and stacking or burning the debris. Volunteers will be using handtools, bowsaws and loppers; some of the team will be certificated power tool users and will be using chainsaws and brushcutters. Work parties run between September and the end of March.

Where: Meeting points to be confirmed each week, minibus transport can be provided from Weymouth and Dorchester and lifts from other parts of Dorset can usually be arranged.

Suggested things to bring: Waterproofs, suitable walking footwear, snack and drink, mug for hot drinks. We generally provide soup for lunch but volunteers are recommended to bring their own lunch and snacks as well. 

Cost: Free
