POSTPONED Alners Gorse Butterfly Reserve - Volunteer workparty

Hazelbury Bryan, Dorset


We have a busy programme of winter work to carry out including some routine cutting of young scrub regrowth and some more major scrub removal where the open habitat is getting increasingly encroached on by blackthorn and willow. We have achieved a huge amount so far. There will be plenty to do for brushcutter operators but also enough for handtool users too.

We shall meet at the reserve entrance at 9am but walk down to find us if you arrive later. Bring gloves, lunch and refreshments and loppers, bowsaw and secateurs if you have them.

If you are a chainsaw or brushcutter operator, bring your PPE.
