The group was established in 2013 as part of EuCAN CiC to encourage more people and communities to be active in the conservation management of their local environment. Led by local residents, the group provides training and practical experience for local volunteers and other groups in nature conservation and sustainable land management.
Need to know
Thisd group meets approximately monthly, working from 10am until around 3pm.
We will provide the tools for the work, but please bring your own mug for hot drinks, your packed lunch and working gloves with you. If you can offer a lift or need one, contact Trevor Phelps in advance of the task (firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 07971 289 771). If you are a chainsaw or brushcutter user, you will need your own PPE and you should have attended a refresher course in the last five years.
It always helps us if you can let us know in advance if you are planning to attend, but this is not essential. Please contact Trevor Phelps by phone or email the evening before if the weather forecast is bad enough to put the task in doubt.
