We are delighted to be back! Join us this Sunday at Mourier Valley for new woodland maintenance with the National Trust for Jersey.

Task It is time to revisit the Mourier Valley New Woodland site after its second year of planting for a morning of tree maintenance and mulching with the National Trust for Jersey. The task will include mulching newly planted trees (to help retain water and supress weeds), weeding tree guards, removing old spirals and guards and some grassland management.

Please meet at the car park at 10am to allow us to walk over to the site and start work for 10.30am. We will finish for 1pm.

If you have any questions, or if you wish to be added to the Jersey Conservation Volunteers email list, please contact either Julia Clively (tel: 441600; j.clively@gov.je) or Jon Parkes (tel: 483193; jon.parkes@nationaltrust.je).

Clothing needed Please dress for the weather and bear in mind how exposed the site is on the north coast. Sturdy boots are recommended as we will be working on some sloped gradients.
