Heathland Management - The Lodge
The Lodge Reserve
Why we want you
A major project at the reserve is to restore the heathland to bring back heathland flora so that the fauna follows and target birds such as nightjar and woodlark are attracted to the site. Volunteers are needed to clear scrub from the new heathland area because heavy machinery could disturb the important wildlife we are working to protect. As an independent registered charity we rely on volunteers to help us carry out this work.
What’s in it for you?
RSPB Team Challenge offers an unusual and cost-effective alternative to the myriad of outdoor 'corporate training' days now on offer. Your employees will join regular RSPB staff at one of the RSPB's top nature reserves and become 'Wardens' for a day - making a real contribution to wildlife conservation while working as a team and having fun.
The skills you need
Team Challenges can be muddy and energetic, but that's all part of the fun! We will provide supervision and any tools or materials necessary to complete the task (unless obtaining them is part of the challenge!).
No experience is necessary but you do need to be able to do physical work.
Volunteers will need a packed lunch, plenty of drinking water, stout shoes, waterproofs and a change of clothes in case of bad weather, sun cream and hats if hot.
Minimum commitment: 1 day
Duration: 1 day
Period: Mid September - February
