Bure Valley Conservation Group – who are we?
We are currently bursting at the seams with lovely volunteers! This is a great position to be in, but means that for the time being we are closed to new volunteers. If you would like to be put on our waiting list, please contact us with your name, email address and contact number.
We’re a group of enthusiastic volunteers who run a wildlife and nature conservation group for the beautiful Bure Valley and its surrounding area and communities. We launched in 2015 with the help of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
Our group meets on Wednesday mornings, and gives volunteers the chance to learn about conservation and wildlife, as well as trying practical conservation work if you’d like to. That might be clearing scrub, digging ponds, managing wildflower meadows – basically anything which improves the area for nature. We also have regular nature walks and talks.
We start at Acle Library, Bridewell Lane, Acle, Norwich, Norfolk NR13 3RA at 9.30am where we arrange car shares, or you can usually go straight to the venue for 10am (this depends on parking facilities on site). We finish around 1pm. You don’t have to be physically fit to take part, but please wear old clothes, suitable for the weather, with sturdy shoes or boots. Wellies may be needed on some sites. We provide training (including health and safety) plus tools and any personal protective equipment like gloves and hard hats.
For more details please see our current programme of events, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask to be added to our contact list.
