Volunteer Conservation Day
A later start, to follow the Mapping Meeting. The day starts at 12.30pm and ends at sunset or 5-ish depending on which one comes first!
Learn new skills, meet new people and help restore the unique woodland of Tortworth Arboretum.
We run monthly volunteer conservation days, using hand tools to restore the arboretum. If you enjoy working in the fresh air in stunning woodland surroundings, this is for you.
Work could include clearing bracken and bramble, chopping firewood, opening up pathways and cutting back overgrowth, building composting bins and more. Volunteers are involved in deciding what work should be done and how we evolve the project.
A light lunch and hot drinks are provided. Please remember to bring your mug, plate, and cutlery with you!
Clothing: As we will be working with bramble please wear long trousers and long sleeved tops. Sturdy shoes are best too as the ground is uneven.
Directions: Please head to GL12 8HH on sat nav, towards the Tortworth Court Hotel. As you turn on to the driveway to the hotel, after a couple of passing places you will come to a green metal gate set back on the right hand side just before a stone building. Turn into this gate and park up.
