We will be working on the regular tasks of grass and clematis/bramble/scrub cutting and would appreciate any additional help available! Hot drinks and cake can be provided but bring your own gloves, mug and a packed lunch.

Broadcroft Quarry was the county's first Butterfly Reserve.  An impressive colony of Silver-studded Blues can be found in this quarry reserve and much of the practical management work is aimed at improving the habitats for this species. 

From 9.30 am to 4.00 pm.

For Broadcroft Quarry Reserve, turn left off Easton Road onto Grove Road and about 100 yards on the right is a track (opposite Portland Football Club) which leads to the car park, map reference SY 695 723.
