CHOPWELL WOOD EVENTS  2020

ALL EVENTS & VOLUNTEERING ARE CANCELLED FROM TODAY (17/3/20) UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS. IT IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY UNLIKELY THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO HOLD OUR USUAL BAT WATCH OR FUNGAL FORAY THIS YEAR. FINAL DECISION HAS NOT YET BEEN MADE.
  

Here are some of our events, but lots more is usually happening via other organisations – especially with the Forestry England “Active Forests” project.

Volunteering Wednesdays
CANCELLED

Wednesdays, 10am


Our dedicated volunteers meet on a Wednesday morning at the Forest Classroom to carry out conservation and maintenance tasks in the Wood, in partnership with  Forestry England.
New helpers are welcome and should attend only on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.  Trained staff should be available on those days to help new volunteers.
Woodland Spring Clean
CANCELLED

Sun 29 March, 11.30am

Do your bit to help keep Chopwell Wood looking tip top!  Pop along between 11.30am and 2.30pm, for as long as you can spare. Meet in the main car park and we’ll provide the gloves, bags and litter pickers. There’ll be a catering van in the car park and Spring Clean helpers will get complimentary refreshments.  See you there!

We are sorry but the 2020 event will probably not take place.
We hope Bat expert Joe Shipley will be back again in 2021 to take you on a dusk discovery of the bats in Chopwell Wood.  Pre-booking essential.  Tickets – cost tbc.  Meet in the layby on the A694 at Lintzford.   Please bring a torch and wear warm clothing as the evenings can get chilly.
