Hedge planting on Florence Boot Field (UP)

January 27th, 2023

On Wednesday 1 February 2023, help us create a new species-rich hedgerow on University Park.

The hedgerow is being planted as part of the construction of a ditch and bund feature on Florence Boot Field.

It will be created in a way that improves biodiversity and provides potential habitat for invertebrates and small mammals that live on campus through the inclusion of hibernacula features.

Alongside the hedge planting, we will sow wildflower seed to further attract wildlife and provide food for insects.

Come along anytime between 10am and 3.30pm to help us establish this new habitat. Or join in with the Conservation Society between 1.30pm – 3.30pm.

You don’t need to bring anything – just make sure you’re wearing something you don’t mind getting dirty!

Meet at the Forever Stars Serenity Garden.
