The Woking Biodiversity Group aims to improve biodiversity within Woking through practical work days, strategic partnerships and engaging and mobilising the local community.
The Group brings together local residents with a keen interest in preserving and enhancing Woking’s green spaces for the benefit of biodiversity.
Volunteering dates for 2022 are listed below. Anyone wishing to join any group for the first time should email email@example.com and leave your telephone number, so that the group leaders know to expect you and can give you more information about the day.
St John’s Lye management includes opening up paths, clearing invasive species such as cherry laurel and holly and saplings on the heathland. Creating areas for wild flowers to grow.
- Sunday 20th November
- Wednesday 7th December
- Sunday 18th December
Sessions run from 10:00 to 13:00 but people are free to come and go as they please.
The party will meet on the tarmac road just past the children’s playground, near the small bridge. Please bring your own gloves and drinks.
Mayford Meadows and White Rose Lane management is focused on the removal of invasive Himalayan Balsam each summer.
Dates will be arranged for White Rose Lane and Mayford Meadows during balsam removal between end of June to the end of August.
