Wetland Management at Woodstock Water Meadows with OCV
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.
Woodstock Water Meadows form a rectangular area of wetland that lies North of the centre of the village, bounded on its short Western side by the A44 and its long Northern side by the river Glyme. The Parish Council has a new long-term management plan for the meadows and this will be our first visit to help them implement it. Todays task is specifically timed to begin the removal of Himalayan Balsam from the site. We’ll also be removing willow saplings, and clearing the channels that demarcate the six different meadows from any obstructions. Bring wellingtons!
