Snelsmore Common, a Country Park since 1972, is generally known for the dominance of heather at the site. It covers around 100 Hectares and contains a range of habitats including heathland, wet heath, valley mire (bog), semi-natural broadleaved woodland and birch woodland, and has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) since 1955. At this important site over 2000 species have been recorded, including many rare flora. OCV have worked at Snelsmore Common along side the Berkshire Conservation Volunteers to remove invasive birch thereby increasing biodiversity and sunlight at the site.
