It's Nectar - Rye Meads
Why we want you
Nectar is the base food of life! It is needed in many varieties to encourage a wide range of invertebrates to thrive at Rye Meads. These nectar feeders in turn provide vital food sources to creatures higher up the food chain, typically birds, which breed at the site. In order to create a diverse range of nectar sources, we need to have a mosaic of grass and shrub habitats that encourage different plants to grow. Your team will help to create this mosaic by managing our vegetation.
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 are 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!). A team of up to 20 enthusiastic volunteers are needed for a fun day out. You will need heavy-duty gloves, safety boots, old clothes, waterproofs, sun cream/hats if hot and packed lunches with plenty of drinking water
Minimum commitment: 1 day
Duration: 1 day
Period: September - February
