Stansfeld woodland restoration project – get involved!
If you love the outdoors and a spot of heavy-duty gardening, come along to Stansfeld Park on Sunday 6th November from 10AM – 4PM and join in with woodland clearing!
We’ve teamed up with Oxford Conservation Volunteers (OCV) to run some woodland clearing days at Stansfeld Park in Headington Quarry – the site which will be home to our new innovation and science education centre in 2018. Currently the 15-acre woodland on the site is very overgrown, with brambles blocking footpaths and ponds hidden behind and beneath overgrowth.
We want to restore the woods back to their past glory, ready for schools and the local community to enjoy once Stansfeld Park is open for business. If you’d like to come and help please register to the OCV mailing list at www.ocv.org.uk/list
- scythe the grassland/meadow area up on the eastern side of the site
- remove the wooden post structure
- relay the hedge that bisects the area
- cut back the scrub on the margins of the grassland
- dismember a fallen tree that’s blocking a footpath
We are planning more clear-up days, so if you can’t make this one keep a look out for details of the next OCV event.
