Join the Green Lancaster team's weekly ECOWoods sessions and take part in hands-on conservation work.
The sessions will take place every Friday either at Forrest Hills or on campus and include activities such as tree planting, spring bulb planting, wildflower meadow, hedgerow & woodland management, natural building, and tree tubes and stakes maintenance.
The ECOWoods project encompasses all of the woodland creation, management and conservation practical work across the campus estate, Hazelrigg and Forrest Hills, via a year-round programme of activity. Students and staff members are encouraged to take part in the project by volunteering. Volunteering with ECOWoods, offers direct and practical responses to the climate and ecological emergencies, as the project restores the local landscape, increases biodiversity, sequesters carbon from the atmosphere and protects against flooding. Get involved, gain practical experience and help with nature regeneration!
Please meet at the ECOHub on Alexandra Park, from where we will make our way on foot to the day’s location.
