We are out most weekends, working on a wide variety of sites which are valuable for wildlife. In the spring and summer our tasks often involve the construction of paths, boardwalks and fences, while autumn is traditionally the time for pond maintenance. Winter months see the management of woodlands and downland by coppicing, hedgelaying and scrub-bashing, usually with a roaring bonfire.
The majority of our work is for Hampshire Wildlife Trust, local councils, schools and various charitable trusts.
New volunteers are always welcome and no previous experience is required. Before work starts, training is given in the safe use of tools and any potential hazards are explained. Experienced volunteers will explain and demonstrate work techniques. You are welcome to come to our tasks before you decide whether to join.
