Harpenden Common Project Days

Start Date: 12th Oct 2021
End Date: 13th Oct 2021
This was an All Day Event

Harpenden Common Volunteers help the Town Council to manage Harpenden Common on dedicated Project Days throughout the autumn and winter months. Managing the Common helps nurture a diverse mosaic of habitats for local wildlife to flourish. Recent project days have included clearing invasive holly from the woodland, coppicing gorse and broom to encourage new growth, and working on projects such as heather restoration.

Project Days are a great opportunity to get out and do some exercise while helping maintain the legacy of Harpenden Common. Come and meet some like-minded people and learn a bit more about wildlife on your doorstep!

Lunch and refreshments are provided, and there is no minimum obligation - volunteer for one project day, multiple project days, or just a few hours!
