Booker Common – Woodland Access project

Aims:

  • To improve accessibility and encourage visitors to make the most of what Booker common has to offer.
  • To increase the woodland biodiversity.

15595714018_7cb1e029b7_oThe Booker Common Woods Protection Society (BCWPS) has mapped the existing network of paths east of Horns Lane and from this we have developed a 2 km ‘figure of 8’ walk with the help of the society’s volunteers.  Shrubs, bushes and trees have been cut back to widen the path and allow light in to promote the growth of smaller plants and the invertebrates they support.  In turn these are fed on by birds and bats thereby increasing biodiversity.

The trees are chipped and the chips are used to improve the surface of the paths. Information boards and signposts are to be erected to mark the route.

The objective is to have the work completed by Easter 2016.

We are keen to work with as many groups as possible on this project.  Please contact us if you would like to get involved.
