The midweek volunteer group is run by our Reserves Officer, Andy Neilson, and undertakes practical nature conservation work on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The group carries out a wide range of management work on Wildlife Trust nature reserves across Leicestershire and Rutland, including mowing and raking, fencing, coppicing and scrub cutting
**September 2019 Please note all of our outdoor volunteer groups are currently operating at full capacity and are not recruiting new volunteers at this time**

Here's what some of our current volunteers have to say..........
It can be quite hard work, which saves on gym membership, but enjoyable doing useful work in nice settings with interesting people.
It's great for getting out into the fresh air in some diverse countryside and at the end of the day you leave with a sense of achievement.
I enjoy the sense of working with nature and with the changing seasons, you get a feeling of rhythm through the year with the different tasks.
