RSPB Plantation

Woodland workday and consultation

On Saturday 29th October we are holding a consultation and workday event at the RSPB Woodland.

This will be an opportunity to see and discuss the work taking place on this 22 year old plantation.

So far we have had work parties from Bournville College and the Bridge Centre to coppice an area of woodland consisting mainly of Oak, Hazel and Blackthorn in a practice that will see a rejuvenation of the ground vegetation in spring-summer 2012.

Volunteers will receive training in tool use, health and safety and woodland management procedures and will be able to discuss plans for the rest of the plantation.

The event is between 10.30 am and 3.00 pm
Meeting at 10.30 at the Tea Rooms
Wear clothes and if you have any bring gloves and a packed lunch, I will bring the storm kettle to make tea.

Call the Rangers for more details on 0121 675 0937
