Work Morning at our new site
Hurston Warren, Storrington West Sussex

An exciting addition to our calendar is our first visit to Hurston Warren SSSI.

Hurston Warren is a 69.1-hectare (171-acre) biological Site of Special Scientific Interest south-east of Pulborough in West Sussex.[1][2]

This site has a variety of habitats, including wet and dry heath, bogs, woodland and open water. One of the bogs is a quaking bog, where a floating raft of vegetation covers open water or fluid peat; it has flora such as round-leaved sundew, bog asphodel, hare’s-tail cottongrass and cranberry. A golf course occupies much of the heath.

This will involve heathland clearance.

10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Work Morning - Dyke Farm
Dyke Farm, Pulbrough West Sussex

Our task at Dyke Farm is improve and enhance its wildlife value. Nicola Peel is encouraging the local community groups to come and use the site for various activities. Our work on the site on different visits will involve tree planting and maintenance, meadow management and  himalayan balsam pulling.
