Dowrog Common volunteering

Wednesday 22 September

The Wildlife Trust South and West Wales invite you to join them on Wednesday 22 September for a volunteer work party at Dowrog Common led by Nathan Walton, the Wildlife Trust Officer for Pembrokeshire. Located on the outskirts of St Davids, Dowrog Common is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSI) and is managed by The Wildlife Trust.

This event is FREE but booking is required.

Volunteers are required to help with scrub clearance, including the cutting back of willow, alder and gorse in order to enhance the valuable heathland habitat and allow better access. If you are interested, please email Nathan using the details below, as numbers are limited to a maximum of 20 and he needs to ensure he has sufficient tools.

Parking is available at The Bug Farm (thanks to Sarah & Andy for allowing that) and Nathan will meet confirmed volunteers in The Bug Farm car park at 10am for a quick welcome, safety brief and to hand out equipment. He’ll then walk everyone over the common and the work area. The event will continue until around 4pm but volunteers can leave sooner if they need to.

Please dress in suitable clothing with sturdy boots or wellington boots, if possible bring your own work gloves as well as waterproofs and warm layers or alternatives subject to the weather conditions. It is recommend that you bring drinking water, a flask and sandwiches or something for lunch to sustain you!

Once booked, Nathan will inform you if the event is cancelled for any reason.

Meeting point: The Bug Farm car park, Lower Harglodd Farm, St Davids SA62 6BX
