Newfield Spring Woods (Moss Valley) – NFM Volunteer Day (must book)

27-06-23 10:00 - 13:00
Newfield Spring Woods
Address: Cannot determine address at this location.

Tasks: Leaky dam & vegetation surveys

Timing: 10am – 1pm

We will be carrying out surveys around the leaky barriers we’ve been installing to slow flows during heavy rainfall to help us get a better understanding of if and how these barriers influence the river channel where they are installed including the bank sides and vegetation. Training will be given on the day and though some experience of plant ID would be helpful, it’s not essential. Access to sites is through woodland on rough ground. All welcome! 

 

Sturdy footwear (wellies preferably), long sleeves, trousers and waterproofs are recommended. All other equipment will be provided.

 

There are a limited number of spaces available so you will need to book on to this session in advance.
