Description

We are working hard at Parc Slip Nature Reserve to improve the habitat for Lapwing, a bird that has been in decline across the UK, and we need your help! Join us for weekly practical habitat management of the nature reserve where we will be cutting back scrub and creating new habitat features for Lapwing.

Volunteer with us as a Lapwing Champion to gain:

Meeting place: The Coffee Shop, Parc Slip Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre

Clothing Requirements: Sturdy and waterproof footwear (wellies or waterproof boots) and weather appropriate clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. It is advisable to bring waterproof trousers as the fields we will be working in can be very muddy and boggy when it’s wet.

Equipment and biscuits provided!

Accessibility and Conditions: We will be working where the ground will be rough and boggy. Please be aware that the terrain is difficult to navigate and you must therefore be quite mobile to be able to access it.
