Would you like to help protect local and national wildlife whilst having fun and meeting like minded people?
Here at Old Hall Marshes near Tollesbury we're looking for enthusiastic, friendly volunteers to join our team. At our weekly work parties you'll have a chance to meet others and share your enthusiasm for nature, learn about wildlife and gain an insight into the RSPB's conservation work.
Old Hall Marshes is one of the last remaining stretches of undisturbed ancient grazing marsh throughout Essex. The reserve is a haven for a range of wildlife from tens of thousands of wintering waders and wildfowl to rare damselflies and nationally scarce plants.
We need your help carrying out practical work on the reserve to help look after this special place. Working as part of the team will require good practical and problem solving skills. You'll help manage reedbeds to help species such as bearded tit, replace fencing and gateways, and cut and clear vegetation on the grazing marsh to provide better nesting and feeding areas for breeding waders such as lapwing and redshank.
Our work parties will run every Thursday from October until March. We're aware that everyone has commitments so if you can't make every session don't worry, we would still love to hear from you! We'll be running a taster day on Thursday 15 October, please come along to give it a try (booking essential).
Who to contact
To book onto the taster day or to find out more about volunteering with the RSPB please contact Neil Lincoln on 01621 869015 or drop us an email at email@example.com
