Sunday 19th November - Braywick Nature Centre pond annual clear up
The pond at Braywick Nature Centre is much used by school parties for pond dipping. Each year Wild Maidenhead and WMCV cut and rake up vegetation from around the pond and clear excess vegetation from within the pond. This is our second visit this year when we will clear the half of the pond which is used for pond dipping.
We'll be removing excess weeds from the pond itself and cutting back vegetation from around the edge.
Tools and gloves provided although you may want to bring your own gloves. We will also be bringing waders ranging in size from 6 to 13 for anyone who fancies a paddle, although there will be plenty to do if you prefer to stay on dry land.
There will be a tea break at about 11.30 - tea coffee and biscuits provided.
Braywick Nature is in Hibbert Road, Maidenhead SL6 1UU.

Adults only please.
Sunday 17th December - Ockwells Park tree thinning
WMCV and Wild Maidenhead will be thinning trees in Ockwells Park. These trees were closely planted about 20 years ago. The good news is that most of them survived. However, they are now too close together to develop into a mature wood.
