The Fen lies alongside the river Itchen and has chalk stream, fen and woodland habitats. It is a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation but has little active management. The group was founded in 2017 local volunteers, to study the site and help to manage it for biodiversity.
We will soon be finishing scything in zone 3 to maintain the habitat.
As autumn approaches we will be thinking about practical conservation tasks for the coming season, and will be working with conservation volunteers from Winchester College once again.
