Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership BVCP

Volunteer - Snaky Lane Local Nature Reserve

Come and join our group of conservation volunteers to help manage this little gem of a site in Ash Vale.

We meet on the first Sunday of the month for conservation tasks and are usually on site from 10.30 a.m. - 3.30 p.m., although feel free to join us for any length of time even if just for a cuppa!

We undertake a number of conservation projects at Snaky Lane and are keen for volunteers who enjoy the outdoors to join our friendly group.  We aim to improve our 7-acre reserve, which includes wildflower meadows, pond and hedgerows, for the benefit of wildlife and local residents.  We graze the reserve with cattle, sheep and donkeys and this adds an extra dimension for our volunteers in addition to the usual maintenance of footpaths, tree planting, fence maintenance, etc.  No specific skills are required, and advice and training will be given where required.
