A group set up to do practical work in 2 local wildlife nature reserves - with a few social events too!
The group has been formed from local residents with the assistance of Leicestershire County Council Park Rangers under the County Council’s VIP Scheme (Volunteering, Internships & Placements Scheme) and is primarily targeted to assist with conservation work at both Coleorton Wood and New Lount Nature Reserve.
Volunteers can become involved in a range of practical tasks, such as pond clearing, tree planting, woodland management, ecological surveying, hedge laying, access improvement and wildflower meadow management. We also have volunteers assisting with administrative work, fund raising activities and organising special events. So whatever your skills, it is likely that the group can make good use of them.
We are also seeking ways to monitor the wildlife species on these two conservation sites, which will allow us to monitor the progress we are making in improving the wildlife value of the sites. Any individuals, or groups, that can assist us in this task would also be very welcome.
We are actively looking to increase the membership of the group so that we have a larger pool to support the work. A number of new recruits have joined the group during April and we would like to see more volunteers joining. The work sessions are enjoyable and we make every effort to enjoy the time we spend at the two sites. If you would like to join us, or comment on the group, do contact the Heritage Wardens at email@example.com
