Friends of Welsh Harp Education Centre – Monthly Conservation Days

October 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Each month a great group of individuals come together to do extremely useful habitat conservation and maintenance work around the Centre using basic gardening tools, to gain skills and meet new people. This work supports the activities of the Welsh Harp Environmental Education Centre including over 3000 school children that attend the Centre each year and improves the biodiversity of the woodland habitat.

Previous activities have included clearing glades (open areas within a woodland) and pathways which were choked with ivy and bramble, clearing our Forest School Zone to make room for shelter building and fire lighting activities, moving logs and branches around the site for children’s activities and teaching spaces, building a new pond, and there are many more similar activities to come.

The chosen activities for the day will be selected and emailed out to everyone on the mailing list before the event. If you are not on the mailing list and you wish to be, please email me:

Deb Frankiewicz, welshharpcentre@thames21.org.uk.

What you need to know:

  • All welcome! Young people aged 17 years and under need to be accompanied by a responsible adult, each individual child under 11 years old will need an adult with them at all times as we are using sharp tools.
  • Tea, coffee and snacks, steel toe cap wellington boots, tools and gloves are all provided.
  • Wear comfortable outdoor clothing suitable for gardening.
  • Please meet inside the education centre.

Hope to see you there to continue this amazing work!
