Wildlife Trust launches roving conservation volunteer team

This was sent in from the Wildlife Trust’s City Local group…..it sounds like a good initiative….



The Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trusts (NWT) Nottingham Urban Wildlife Scheme NUWS) has been working with the City Council Rangers and the NWT City Local Group (CLG) to establish a roving volunteer team to support conservation work on those City Wildlife sites which do not currently have their own Friends Groups.

A Saturday morning in January saw some of us burning off the calories at Whitemoor Nature Reserve.


Led by City Ranger Simon (who is also Vice-Chair of NUWS and a CLG committee member) we cleared scrub and bramble to enable some of the grassland to recover, providing a valuable diversity of habitat.

And we had some fun, exercise and fresh air – all those involved will happily repeat the experience.

We have further sessions planned:

Sunrise Hill – Saturday 20th February 10.00 – 2.00, meet at the entrance on Landcroft Crescent, off Arnold Road in Bestwood.

Sandy Banks – Saturday 12th march  10.00-2.00, meet at the the junction of Edwards Lane/Breckhampton Road/Chippenham Road in Bestwood.

More will follow and if you’d like to join us please contact Simon or myself.

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust are currently re-establishing a local group for Nottingham City.  The group held an “Urban Safari” on the Forest Recreation Ground last weekend, and further activities are planned……

members mailing august 2014-page-001This group looks likely to be an excellent way to find out about wildlife and get involved in conservation in the city, and hopefully it will go from strength to strength.
