Nature lovers needed for a day of conservation work in Fremington
Posted on: 31 October 2019
Volunteers are being sought to help at a hands-on conservation day in Fremington next month.
The Practical Conservation Day will take place at the Fremington Local Nature Reserve on Sunday 17 November at 10am.
At this free event, run by local wildlife experts in conjunction with North Devon Council, North Devon Biosphere and Fremington Parish Council – volunteers will have the opportunity to help with a range of conservation tasks such as installing nest boxes, improving a pond and managing scrub.
Leader of North Devon Council, Councillor David Worden, says: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together and improve their local area. It’s a free event that is open to all ages, and will give volunteers the opportunity to help their local wildlife whilst meeting new people and getting active in a relaxing, outdoors environment. There is no need to book, just come along and provide your services.”
Anyone wishing to take part in this nature conservation work is asked to meet at the entrance to Griggs Field, off Beechfield Road, bring a drink and a packed lunch, wear clothing appropriate for the weather and sturdy footwear suitable for uneven ground.Posted in: Leisure
