What we're looking for
Old Hall Marshes is one of the best examples of ancient grazing marsh in Eastern England, representing one of the last remaining coastal wildernesses in Essex. We are looking for people to join us on a weekly work party to carry out practical habitat management work vital to our conservation efforts to save threatened wildlife. The work will vary throughout the year but will include building fences to control livestock, critical to getting the grass in good condition for breeding birds. Other tasks may include reedbed management to create different age mosaic of reed to benefit bearded tits and removing sea club-rush to provide better nesting and feeding areas for breeding waders such as lapwing.
