Conservation Volunteer

Conservation Volunteers main aim is to improve the habitat for wildlife with tasks such as controlling the spread of trees and scrub on precious chalk grassland, fence repairs, removing litter and keeping paths open.  We also work with Butterfly Conservation and Kew/Wakehurst Place on an exciting new project to create habitat for the the threatened Duke of Burgundy butterfly.  Additional activities include preparation for Discovery Days and Bushcraft Days, which are popular with local children.
