Volunteer Conservation Task at Avon Heath
Thursday 9 November 2017 10:00 - 16:00
Activity: Conservation activities such as using hand tools to cut small pine trees and other invasive plants threatening the heathland. Tasks will reflect the needs of the park depending on the season and may even be based round visitor facilities if required to support the running of the park such as creating planters. Volunteers also help to create and tend to a fire for burning the waste. Volunteers will ideally be able to bend and lift/carry item (within their limit), but the rangers are happy to discuss any special needs and may be able to organise activities to suit the individual with the activity as a whole.

Accredited Natural Choices activities are regular (weekly/fortnightly) and providers have public liability insurance and health and safety policies.
Non-accredited Natural Choices activities are less frequent (e.g. monthly) and/or providers are community groups without insurances or policies but activities are equally beneficial to health and wellbeing.
