About Coppice Blue and Pink HeathersA range of coppice and scrub based tasks.
Help out At Hinton Ampner and Selborne Common with a range of conservation tasks that include scrub removal, glade creation, the widening of woodland rides and the restoration of a coppice rotation situated in an ancient woodland rich with bluebells. Other tasks include removing invasive species on heathlands, the restoration of wood pasture and grassland habitats, with further upkeep of the access to these sites.
