Conservation Day – Stansfeld Park

Whats On
Sunday, 18th February 2018
9.45AM - 4PM

It’s time to grab your gardening gloves, don your wellies and head to Stansfeld Park for the first of our conservation days for 2018. Run in partnership with the amazing Oxford Conservation Volunteers, we’re working to rejuvenate the 15 acres of woodland, ponds and grassland at Stansfeld and create a fantastic urban wildspace for future primary school visitors and the local community to enjoy.

At the last conservation day, in November, we chopped trees, cleared pathways and planted bluebells. This time around we’ll be working in a different region of the woodland – constructing and landscaping a new pond in one corner of the site ready for this spring. We need your help to clear some scrub, prepare the groundworks and build in a new pond liner. Depending on numbers we may be able to work to prepare two ponds to maximise the regions of open water on site. Once filled we aim to fill these ponds with native aquatic plants and provide valuable aquatic habitat to complement works going on across the site.

Join us onsite at 9:45am for a 10am start, finishing up around 4pm but please free to attend for as long as you can spare.

Unfortunately due to the use of power tools and the rather confined workspace, this is activity is not suitable for families, but please contact us if you have any queries. Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult who will be responsible for their safety. You can email [email protected] or call 01865 810012.
