Conservation Volunteers

The Volunteer task force makes a special contribution to the conservation and management of the Wye Valley AONB. Volunteers work on a range of landscape and wildlife conservation tasks, including scrub clearance, tree planting, hedging, stonewalling and improvements to pathways. Conservations tasks are held once a month throughout most of the year. They are an excellent way to learn a new skill, meet new people and become knowledgeable about the AONB and the landscapes and wildlife that make it so special.

New volunteers are always welcome. The current  varied group  include students, the active retired, career changers and those who work part-time. For more details about the volunteers task force e-mail: community@wyevalleyaonb.org.uk
