A litter pick event is set to take place on Barnham Cross Common in Thetford.
On Friday, March 2, residents are invited to help clear rubbish and fly-tipped items from the site of special scientific interest.
The grazing animals on the common have eaten back vegetation and exposed the rubbish.
It needs to be cleared to reduce the hazards to the animals, wildlife and those who use the popular walking site.
Organised by Breckland Council and the town council, helpers can meet at the Barnham Cross car park off the A134 Bury Road at 9.30am.
The event will end at 11.30am and cake will be provided.
Sheep and cows were put on the common to graze last year as part of a 10-year conservation project to promote native plant species.
