Event Details

Please note: this event has been cancelled.

In light of the changing situation surrounding the spread of coronavirus, this course has been cancelled.

The next Conservation Volunteering session is Saturday, 28 March, 10.00 am-1.00pm

At Gosforth Nature Reserve, there are always more tasks than there are people to do them. Each week, a handful of volunteers work for a few hours to make the reserve a better place for everyone, including wildlife! Tasks include:

  • building and maintaining boardwalks to increase accessibility
  • improving the hides for greater comfort and bird-watching potential
  • woodland management and restoration of native woodland
  • removal of invasive species to support and conserve our local species

There is something to do for members of all ages (teen & up) and abilities, and every little bit helps to ensure the short, medium and long-term success of our beautiful nature reserve. Whether you would like an opportunity to get active, to pick up new skills, meet new people, or add something to your CV, we need you at the reserve.

Training (and biscuits) will be provided. Please wear sensible clothing and footwear.
