Conservation Day March 2011

1 Comment

22 Bronze pupils did their first conservation day at Petridgewood Common near Salfords.  Reigate Area Conservation Volunteers led the day and instructed pupils in the safe use of cutting tools and the purpose of felling and removing invading scrub species on the common.  All pupils worked very well indeed and made a real difference to the area creating a more diverse habitat for species including rare butterflies, orchids and camomile.
