The purpose of the Trust is to develop the educational, monitoring and survey aspects of Ruislip Woods – all designed to ensure that we know about the Woods, understand what changes are occurring (natural and man made) and provide accurate information to preserve the quality of the habitat. Without this information we will not know when damaging activities are happening, until it is too late. Currently there are 175,000 visitors a year to Ruislip Woods and with expected increases in that number, we must monitor carefully the effects of erosion. A number of rapidly spreading invasive species are starting to occur in the Woods, but without pinpointing their locations no-one knows their true extent.
We need the public’s support in two ways. First, we want the public to know what is in the Woods, what is of interest, how they are managed, what the problems are and how we can solve them. Secondly, we need financial support to meet the costs of providing information.
That is why we formed the Friends of Ruislip Woods, to which anyone can belong – individuals, societies, clubs, schools and companies.
By bringing together the activities and findings of a number of local groups the Trust will be able to keep the public informed of the many exciting events in the Woods that appeal to nature conservationists, walkers, runners and horse riders.
