Regular Groups

Foxglove Volunteer Group

Every Tuesday 9.30am

Volunteering is taking place again, please get in touch if you would like to join our friendly group.

Foxglove Volunteer Group meet every Tuesday, all year round, whatever the weather! We do a variety of tasks which are vital to the running of our 100 acre site. Jobs can be anything from coppicing and path maintenance to tree planting and felling. No previous experience is required.

If you want to stay for a full day make sure you bring a packed lunch. Old clothes and boots or wellies are, of course, a necessity. Gloves, tools and training are provided. There are other ways to be involved as a volunteer. Surveying, monitoring and fund-raising are just a few examples of where we need help. If you have a skill and/or some time to spare, why not give us a call.

Identifying and Recording Moths

Every Wednesday 9.00am

Moth species are monitored weekly whenever possible (this is a weather dependant activity). When the weather is suitable traps are set on Tuesday evenings. If you would like to help with identifying and recording the moths on a Wednesday morning, or would just like to come along and see these beautiful insects please contact the Reserve Managers for more information.
