Nature Conservation | Weekly Volunteering
Every Thursday 10am to 12.30pm we’re going to be volunteering at Silverdale Country Park – doing our bit to ‘Give’ (Spirit) and ‘Care’ (Planet)!
We work in association with and under the guidance of park ranger, doing activities like planting wildflower meadow, species diversity surveys, brash hedge laying, fence building and mending, wildlife habitat building and tree planting – plus generally helping to make the park safe and secure for the human’s and nature. We’re joined by the park’s regular bunch of volunteers who share a wealth of knowledge of the Silverdale landscape and it’s wildlife inhabitants – so it’s a great place to share information and learn too. We don’t profess to be wildlife experts, so we ourselves are learning all the time too.
