Restoring Ponds in Birdham
November 6 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
FLOW (Fixing and Linking Our Wetlands) is a Heritage Lottery Funded Project to survey and improve the ditch network of the Manhood Peninsula, to prevent flooding and increase vital habitat for wildlife. FLOW works in the following parishes: Apuldram, Donnington, Earnley, East Wittering, Bracklesham, Hunston, North Mundham, Selsey, Sidlesham, West Wittering, West Itchenor and Birdham.
We will be cutting back bramble, removing thistles, raking the ground for wildflower seeds, picking up dead wood, and creating habitat piles, at Kingfisher Pond, Triangle Pond, and Birdham Village Pond.
Volunteers will be allocated disinfected tools at the start of the activity, but if you have substantial gardening tools and would prefer to use your own, please bring them along. This is a muddy site so wellies or waders are advised.
Please bring your own gloves. We will bring cake and hot water, but please bring your own cup, and if you will stay all day please bring a packed lunch. See our full COVID-19 volunteering policy here.
