With restrictions easing, we’re holding outdoor events again.  Everyone is welcome to attend to learn more about, and help, local wildlife

NEW for 2022!

We will be holding regular conservation work parties to better care for the sites we manage for the Parish Council on the third Saturday of each month, except in July and September.  These are morning sessions and the tasks are like typical gardening work with the advantage that many hands make light work!

Volunteer work party at Greenmoor Ponds on Saturday 15 January at 10am

Make helping at our monthly “green gym” exercise sessions your new year’s resolution!

Come along and lend a hand at our next conservation work party here at Greenmoor Ponds and join us for a couple of hours to help local wildlife.    

In February the frogs, toads and newts will start migrating here to breed.  Newt courtship involves males displaying to females in clear water.  So, to help them, we will be creating more open water in the upper pond by removing the invasive non-native plant Crassula and some of the yellow flag iris. 

Wear old clothes and wellies.  Bring thick rubber gloves and/or gardening gloves to protect your hands and keep them warm.  Tools will be provided, but you’re welcome to bring along a rake and garden fork if you have them. 

We look forward to seeing you on 15th January.  Email info@woodcotecg.org.uk if you have any queries.
