Practical Conservation Task Day- Humberhead Levels

Would you like to get stuck into some outdoor conservation work?

Join us for a day of practical conservation and surveying across the Humberhead Levels. A landscape that ranges from Doncaster to Goole and down to Lincolnshire. There’s always plenty to do whatever the season; scything, raking, fencing and tree planting to name a few. Our team of volunteers meet at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve and then travel out together (transport provided by the Trust) to carry out tasks on a range of partner sites with a mixture of habitats including lovely wildflower meadows and woodland. Volunteers rotate around these sites with a different location for task days every week.
