BEES Volunteering Conservation Task Group

BEES run a nature conservation volunteer group each Friday and some Thursdays. We carry out seasonal conservation tasks, such as tree planting, the creation and management of various wildlife habitats including orchards and nature reserves, pond and meadow management, schools and community gardens, food growing, and some hard landscaping. You will need appropriate clothing, but we can provide waterproof clothing and boots. We can also arrange transport or reimburse travel costs. If you would like to join us please get in touch.

Skills

We can teach you the practical skills needed for various tasks on the day.
