From Mon, 15th until Sun, 21st September London Wildlife Trust will be running the annual residential/camping week, based at Fryland’s Wood Scout camp site, working on some of the chalk grassland reserves in the Croydon and Bromley areas. Tasks will include scrub clearance/burning at Saltbox Hill (SSSI) and
Hutchinson’s Bank, grassland mowing and strip burning at West Kent Golf Course (on the slopes adjacent to, not on the golf course!).

In-house training will be given in aspects of safe tree felling, using power tools (including petrol brushcutters and mowers), blade sharpening and other practical tasks.

Full details about camping, transport pick-ups/drop-offs to a local tram stop, what you need to bring, etc will be sent out soon. Contact Shaun to sign up. You’re welcome to come for any time you’re free and don’t have to camp overnight; also, please feel free to bring partners and friends, as long as we know they’re coming. Volunteers and LWT staff from all over London will be coming.
