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.
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.

|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.

See you there!|
