Project Description

One way to stave off winter blues and colds could be to join in with a winter work party for fresh air, exercise, company and hot tea or coffee while you help provide homes for nature!

Join us for our winter task taster sessions improving habitats and tackling invasive plants on a variety of beautiful nature reserves throughout Purbeck with local conservation partners on Thursdays until March 2020.

It's fine to drop in on the day and to stay half day or full day. Wear warm clothes, bring sturdy shoes and wellies, a water bottle, waterproofs, a packed lunch if staying all day. Task leaders will provide protective gloves, tools and hot drinks.

In some locations there may be limited access to toilets, in some locations toilets or a portaloo will be available.

In school holidays children are welcome accompanied by a responsible adult recommended over the age of 12.

Help tackle invasive plants, cut back and manage habitats so wildlife can thrive. Get in touch to get details of the day FREE
