Scrub clearance days at West Yatton Down SSSI will be held on the second Friday of each autumn and winter month, to conserve the environment on this beautiful site supporting nine species of orchid and more than thirty species of butterfly. Volunteers should wrap up warm; bring a picnic lunch or flask of tea if you would like to do a further hour or so in the afternoon. We have purchased some fabulous tools call Tree Poppers, they remove the roots too, and you’ll love them.
