Volunteer Taster DaysDistance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 3.4 miles 10:00 am
The Woodland Trust are setting up regular volunteer work days in the Avon Valley Woods to involve local people in helping to care for these woods.
"Come along and have a go at some traditional woodland tasks like coppicing on one of these fun taster days, to decide if you’d like to join our regular volunteer group.
In the first few sessions we’ll be undertaking essential path and ride-side management in the recently planted woods to create a more mixed woodland structure. You’ll spend the day learning the ancient craft of coppicing alongside our professional local woodsman and ecologist, Dave Barker. You will also be improving access for people and creating more diverse habitats for wildlife.
You are welcome to come along to a couple of sessions to try it out. Then if you decide you want to join the regular working group, we’ll sign you up as a Woodland Trust Volunteer. All tools and training will be provided.
We will meet at the Northern Car Park of Watkins Wood. Nearest Post Code: TQ7 4DH. Grid Reference: SX 74175 49864
Please book if you can so we have an idea of numbers, but you are also welcome to just come along at meet us at 10am. Children over 8 years old are welcome as long as they are supervised at all times by a parent or guardian. No dogs please.
