Lesnes Abbey Conservation Volunteers, the group that does habitat management work in the woods, has issued details of events for the next month, pending the drawing up of a longer term series of sessions once work on the visitor centre is completed. Tristan Boulton, chair of the group said “Hopefully the new building will be complete in a month or so and then weekday events can be trialled for those unable to attend weekend events.”
All meetings start at 12 noon by the picnic tables near the new visitor centre. New recruits welcome. No particular skills required.
Sunday October 2nd. Fountain Pond Rhododendron removal. Following up on the task earlier in the year to remove regrowth from this invasive species to help protect the wildlife of the area.
Sunday October 16th. Mossy Glade. Controlling bramble to help conserve the mosses. Bring your cameras as the autumn colours should be in evidence.
Sunday October 30th. Ramson Glade. Helping to protect the spring flowers from the more vigorous species.
Sunday November 13th. Birch Hill Path. Continuing with the vegetation work from previous tasks to help the bluebells to flourish.
