PRACTICAL CONSERVATION VOLUNTEERING, SOUTH LONDON NATURE RESERVES
Project Category: Registered charity
London Wildlife Trust runs practical workdays on Tuesday and Fridays each week, along with certain Sundays each month. If you love getting outdoors, nature conservation and wild spaces then you can help us restore areas of chalk grassland habitat (home to over 30 species of butterfly, kestrels, beetles, bees, vetches…..) We clear scrub build up to help wildflowers to establish, mow grasslands, keep footpaths clear of overgrowth, repair steps, gates and fences, along with many other tasks….. All year round we’re working here and at other nearby reserves, each with a different character of their own.
The location of workdays varies as we cover several different reserves on the greenbelt/urban fringe of Croydon and Bromley boroughs but all you need to do is contact Shaun:
firstname.lastname@example.org for more details of where we’re working, what we’re doing and what time to meet. It’s sometimes possible to be picked up in the vehicle at Addington Village Tram Interchange.
Times on site are usually from 10.15am to 4pm, depending on where we’re working, but we usually meet at our tool shed at Fryland’s Wood on Featherbed Lane. We provide all tools, gloves and other personal protective equipment (PPE) and reimburse lunch up to £4 per workday (with receipts). Travel costs are reimbursed with proof of journey for Oyster or Traverlcard (off-peak) Zones 1 to 6.
Please contact me for more information (don’t just turn up) and I’ll send you the programme, along with a Volunteer Registration form to complete.
