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

26-05-22 10:00 - 15:00
Newfield Spring Woods
Address: Cannot determine address at this location.

Tasks: River & vegetation surveys

Timing: 10am – 3pm

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 vegetation around the dams and the river channel. Training will be given on the day and though some experience of plant ID would be helpful, it’s not essential. All welcome!

Sturdy footwear, 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.
