Volunteer Conservation

Stour Valley needs you. Here's how you can become part of our volunteer conservation teams

Stour Valley Supporters Group (SVS)

Tuesday mornings 9:30am - 1pm

Meet at the Kingfisher Barn and head onto site - tea and biscuits provided at morning break. A fantastic bunch, dedicated to improving and carrying out essential works in the area. Some tasks are hard work but we always try to accomodate the workability of all our volunteers, therefore ligher tasks are always on hand.

North Bournemouth Conservation Volunteers (NBCV)

Wednesday and Thursdays 10am - 3pm

Join this friendly group of volunteers, led by a Ranger, with habitat management work. This is usually things like shrub cutting, hedge laying and tree work in the winter, whilst in the summer, it is usually path work, gates and clearing invasive plants like ragwort or Himalayan balsam. Tea and biscuits provided at break but if staying all day please bring a lunch.

Work takes place across our nature reserves in the North of Bournemouth:

Contact Tom Bennett (or call in to the Centre) to find out more.

You can also complete a volunteer form here and drop it into us at the Kingfisher Barn.
