Sessions will run from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm at the latest, but typically they will round-up by around 1:00 pm.

If you are coming along and have volunteered before, please drop George Green an email in advance () so as he has an idea of numbers.

If this will be your first session, you must also contact the Wildlife Trust prior to volunteering. If people do turn up without having completed their Enquiry Process they will not be able to participate. Any new volunteer enquiries must come through the Wildlife Trust, Tel. 02476 302 912, Email 

Even if you have not volunteered before no prior experience is needed, and gloves, tools, tea coffee & biscuits will be provided, and you will be given an explanation of the tasks. You will need sturdy footwear and suitable outdoor clothing. You will be notified where to meet and of arrangements for the sessions, and there will be a short induction and small amount of paperwork to complete on your  first session.
