Project Description

We run practical conservation work parties on Wednesdays and Thursdays and usually the second and fourth Sunday morning of the month (other sessions may be available depending on workload) - our volunteers get involved in a wide range of tasks including digging turf ponds, cutting scrub, fencing, clearing fen vegetation, water level monitoring and lots more. We also do lots of survey work and much more.

Volunteers can attend for as long or as little as they like. Volunteers can choose to join us every week or occasionally to fit in with their other commitments. Other days and times may be available so please ask.

Please wear old clothing and sturdy footwear suitable for the task. Protection against the weather such as sun cream, a hat or a waterproof is advisable, along with a fully charged mobile phone.

No experience necessary as full training provided. Just come along with enthusiasm, a willingness to learn, a good sense of humour and a love of cake!
