Path Clearance & Woodland Management at Priors Dean

Who is this for?

The footpaths at The Warren, Priors Dean in Petersfield have become hard to access due to fallen trees and overgrowing vegetation. Join The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) Hampshire in working with the site rangers to clear the trees and vegetation to make the paths accessible again. There is also an area at the bottom of the hanger which they will clear (once the paths are clear) to encourage more ground flora species.

 

This activity is set for Thursday 12th March 2015 starting at 10am and finishing up at 3pm.

 

Car parking is on the grass verge along the unnamed road. The site entrance is on the eastern side of the road and marked with a green HCC sign with the site name on it.

 

TCV Hampshire runs lots of events in our county and for more details please go to:
