Breathing Places 'Dirty Weekend' schedule

Breathing Places Weekend at BEES UNR.

As part of BBC Breathing Places BEES are running a full weekend of activities at the Nature Reserve on 6th and 7th of June. This is part of a variety of events over the next few weeks; some tasks, some open days and some a mix of the two. For a full list see here

Volunteer opportunities

We would welcome support from volunteers to help the weekend be a success.

Please contact  the office if you would like to volunteer. Please state the time (we are 'open to the public' 11-4 but will be preparing and clearing before and after) and day you would like to volunteer and if you have a preference for which activites you would like to support, or if you just wish to be on hand to chat with visitors and show people around. There will be refreshments served all day so we also need help with making teas and coffees.
