As there is a lot of necessary work to be carried out at Langley Park on an ongoing basis, we have a group of volunteers who help us once a month to do this. The kind of things we do are clearing the ha-ha, cutting down the willows in the reflection pond, beetle bank construction (see below), putting the orienteering posts in for the launch of the orienteering trail, weaving willow guards to protect young trees, plus lots more. It is lots of fun, can be hard work, and is very rewarding. We have hot drinks and biscuits provided throughout the day and bring our own lunch. Although we start at 10am and some work through til 3pm, people are free to leave whenever they want.
If you have some spare time or would like to be in nature with a group of like-minded fun people, then come along and give us a hand - all help very much appreciated.
We meet at Langley Park car park at 10am on the first and third Saturday of each month - see posters around the parks or the Calendar for details of dates and projects. Parking is free for volunteers on the conservation day, so please ask Craig or Ben, who will be leading, for a parking voucher.
See individual pages for details and photos of all the conservation work we have carried out over the last 5 years. Also see a couple of video clips on the Videos page.
Please note the Thursday afternoon volunteer group has now finished.
