Stansfeld woodland restoration project weekender

Whats On
Saturday, 29th April 2017 - Sunday, 30th April 2017
10AM - 4PM
Over 14s

If you’re looking for some outdoor activity to work off those chocolate eggs after Easter, then come along to Stansfeld Park on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th April from 10AM – 4PM and join Oxford Conservation Volunteers (OCV) with woodland clearing.

This weekend we will tackle the boardwalk section, the sedge and continue scrub clearance. You could help on either Saturday or Sunday – or both if you are feeling energetic! As always, there will be plenty of tea and biscuits.

Stansfeld woodland restoration project 

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

More details about the day can be found here: and information about the site here.

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.
