Conservation Volunteers

So sorry that's it's been so long since the last regular Friday task programme. We hope you stayed safe and well during this challenging period.

We are now gradually trying to get going again. For the time being we will be meeting on site rather than offering minibus transport, and as we are restricting numbers we need to plan ahead and book people in.

Please get in touch if you are interested in volunteering so you can be kept informed of opportunities.

Thank you, and hope to see you soon.

 

Forthcoming Friday tasks are listed below.

We work on a variety of urban and urban fringe sites in the Bradford district, managing them for the benefit of wildlife and local people.

We offer an opportunity for anybody interested in nature conservation or people keen to help maintain local areas and make a positive impact on the local environment. No previous experience is necessary; training will be given on the day.

The meeting point for the workdays is Culture Fusion,
125 Thornton Road, Bradford, BD1 2EP (a few minutes walk from City Park).

Fridays: Please arrive between 9.30 - 9.45am. We leave at 10am. We normally work until mid afternoon, but any contribution is welcomed.

We encourage all prospective volunteers to contact the office if you are interested in volunteering and we will discuss details.
