Could you cut it as a volunteer?
Our volunteers have to be tough, willing to become worn out and wet. But it's enjoyable work in good company.
Conservation field work mainly involves the removal of those plants that tend to dominate if left to their own devices. We use machinery for this work, and we'll provide training where appropriate. But there is still a lot of work done by hand and for this we will provide gloves, ear defenders and hand tools as well as the machines.
We meet on Thursday mornings for three hours and only work from September to March, so as not to disturb the wildlife, particularly the ground nesting birds. With a refreshment break in the middle, it sounds easy. The reward is the sight of regenerating heaths and the knowledge that the diversity of wildlife is increasing.
