Conservation work takes place on the second Sunday of every month (but third Sunday in November) between 10 am and 1 pm. For scrub clearance our current work area is in the Moor's north-eastern corner, between the main Mill Lane entrance and the footbridge leading to the Byewaters estate (turn left immediately after entering from Mill Lane). Tools, gloves (and hats and goggles for scrub clearance) are provided. Suitable shoes (and long trousers and shirt sleeves for scrub clearance) are advisable.

VOLUNTEERING OPEN DAY
A opportunity to find out more about volunteering with us, without commitment. You can try out our scrub clearance tools, and go on a short walk to find out why and how the Moor needs to be managed.
Sunday 26 September 12 noon to 4 pm in our current work area (described above). E-mailing us beforehand is helpful but not essential. This is part of the national Great Big Green Week: full local events calendar at GBGW-events-booklet-FINAL-v1.pdf (greenwatford.uk)
