Oxford Conservation Volunteers

Oxford Conservation Volunteers (OCV) is a voluntary organisation that has been carrying out practical work to conserve the natural environment in Oxford and the Oxfordshire countryside since 1977.

Founded 1977

  • Mission statement

    OCV provides a reliable means of traditional countryside management for various clients in and around Oxford - including charities, trusts, educational institutions, local and parish councils. Our work enhances the biodiversity of the Oxfordshire countryside, including work at sites of special scientific interest. OCV enables volunteers from all kinds of background to get involved in the upkeep of urban and rural green spaces, and provides training in traditional techniques of countryside management. Our activities include coppicing, hedge-laying, scrub-clearance, stream and pond-management, path-laying, the construction of board-walks and dipping-platforms, and the erection of gates and fencing. These activities take place every Sunday, and on some Saturdays, all year round. Our most significant costs are incurred by the maintenance and renovation of our stock of tools.
