Site Clearance at Aston Rowant Nature Reserve with OVC
Oxford Conservation Volunteers is a voluntary organisation that has been carrying out practical work conserving the wildlife and traditional landscape of the Oxford area since 1977. The group organises work parties every Sunday (and some Saturdays) and undertakes a wide variety of nature conservation work. This can range from the traditional craft of hedge laying to the modern practice of fence building; from creating new hedges by tree planting to conserving chalk grassland habitats by scrub clearance.
Our June visit to this important National Nature Reserve in the Chilterns. It’s a site that includes important chalk grassland which is grazed by a number of flocks of sheep. We’ll be working with one of the wardens from Natural England. At this time of year its likely that well be helping out with the sheep themselves or working on paths and fences. Full details will be in the weekly email as usual. By the way, if youve ever thought about leading an OCV task, then an Aston Rowant task would be a good one to start with contact Phil Hunter: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
