Conservation Work Parties

Changes due to corona virus pandemic

We still plan to run volunteer sessions, but special considerations are in place due to the pandemic

Regular volunteers will be contacted and asked to prebook their sessions as numbers are limited.

Volunteers will be asked to bring their own refreshments, tools and gloves

If you are interested in joining us as a volunteer, please contact us using the Contact Form - with the destination of Work Parties - and we will get back to you.

We will be working with the BVCP volunteer handbook, available to download here
