Comment on this story on the

Gunnersbury Triangle is a local wet woodland nature reserve that was saved from development in the early 1980s.

Today, birds and small mammals take advantage of the sheltered birch and willow, while walkways and footpaths help visitors explore this wild oasis in Chiswick.

To keep the nature reserve in good condition they rely on the help of volunteers, and are looking for people to join them on Sunday 18 December 10.30am Ė 3.30pm to help with practical conservation tasks.

They will be removing bramble and ivy from around the reserve, restoring an area of acid grassland and creating a tree nursery for silver birch and will also be finishing their dead hedge. Dead hedges are an ancient form of hedging, created using cut branches and twigs. They are easy to make and provide important wildlife habitat.

Everyone is welcome and no previous experience is necessary. Tools and safety equipment will be provided. Wwear warm clothes you donít mind getting mucky. Meet at the entrance to the nature reserve, opposite Chiswick Park tube station.

Conservation officer Netty can be contacted on 07734 599 729.
