Sun 25th November: Ashclyst Forest near Exeter 10.30 am - 2.30 pm

Ashclyst is an important butterfly habitat and is a new site for our conservation tasks. Today we will be helping to widen one of the rides at Snaffle Drive (10 minute walk) by removing small trees. Bring cutting tools. Meet in the main Forest Gate car park [SX 999 995].

Most of our winter work days are targeted at helping specific butterfly species but always benefit many other wildlife species that prefer more warmth and light that our clearing work provides. It is usually ok to just turn up on the day but if adverse weather threatens cancellation or for any other queries a contact number is provided. Participants can attend for just part of the day if they wish but should always tell the contact person if they leave early. Bring lunch, a drink, waterproof clothing, stout footwear or boots and gardening gloves. Most people bring their own cutting tools but often some tools will be available to use.
