Woodland Path Clearance

Wednesday 30 January 2019
Time: 10.30am-1.30pm
Places available: 15

Meeting Place: Costa Coffee by the Rootes Building

Help rejuvenate a woodland pathway by removing overhanging tree branches with loppers and saws. By cutting away the tangled wood, walking along the path will be much easier. A more attractive pathway will also encourage people to explore Park Wood, one of Canley’s ancient bluebell woodlands.

Tools and gloves are provided. No experience is needed. Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and strong shoes or boots that you don't mind getting a little muddy.



Tree Care

Wednesday 6 February 2019
Time: 10.30am-2.00pm
Places available: 15

Meeting Place: Costa Coffee by the Rootes Building

Seven years ago, Friends of Canley Green Spaces and Warwick Volunteers planted 420 trees that have now grown into a woodland. Volunteers will be revisiting the tree planting site in Park Wood, to cut away unwanted vegetation from around the trees. This will improve the appearance of the new woodland, giving the trees more light to ensure that they grow healthy.

Tools and gloves are provided. No experience is needed. Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and strong shoes or boots that you don't mind getting a little muddy. Some of the vegetation is prickly, so wear old clothes that fully cover your arms, legs and ankles.

The activity will last for about 3.5 hours.



Winter Walk

Saturday 9 February
Time: 10.30am-1.30pm
Places available: 25

Meeting Place: Costa Coffee by the Rootes Building

Explore the beautiful countryside surrounding the University of Warwick. Friends of Canley Green Spaces will be leading a six mile guided walk from central campus that visits Kenilworth Greenway and Crackley Woods. This is a great opportunity to see nature and wildlife. Along the way we will discover ponds, streams and lakes and see impressive outdoor artwork near the Sustran cycleway.

The circular route follows public right of way footpaths and will take about 3 hours to complete.

Please wear warm outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear, as short sections of the path may be muddy or uneven.
