Work Parties

Come and join one of our work parties for a wildlife work-out. It’s a good way to get some fresh air, keep fit and make a huge difference for local wildlife. Generally no skills are needed as training and tools are provided.

Ecology Groups

Our Ecology Group volunteers help with surveying the wildlife on our reserves to make sure we are managing them in the best ways. Previous experience of surveying is useful but not essential for most surveys, all you need is the enthusiasm to come out regularly and the drive to learn more about our wonderful local wildlife.
