It does not matter how much or how little time you have to spare, conservation volunteering is a practical way for you to protect the environment you care about. As well as learning new skills, get fit and healthy, and meet new people at the same time!
How about helping to establish new habitats, such as hedgerows or woodlands, or manage established areas by keeping them suitable for local wildlife. For example, clearing ponds, or scrub removal from grasslands. You can improve peoples enjoyment of nature by building and maintaining footpath, and other access routes. You may be protecting one a the species highlighted by the County's Biodiversity Action Plan, such as the Cowslip, Skylark or Water vole by volunteering with a conservation group.
No experience is needed, there will always be a leader who can teach you new skills, and show you what to do. All you need is enthusiasm!
You can even help without going outdoors, many conservation groups are grateful for a helping hand in administration, organising events, dealing with publicity or raising funds.
