New Volunteering opportunity every Friday in Johnstown
Wild about Johnstown
Wild Ground own or manage 15 nature reserves across North East Wales and have recently launched a new volunteering project in Johnstown, Wrexham. Wild Ground has successfully secured funding from the Welsh Government’s Landfill Disposal Tax Communities Scheme, administered by WCVA to deliver wildlife-themed volunteering, community events, training days and activities on three Johnstown nature reserves.
The project aims to make the sites more pleasant to visit, improve habitats for wildlife, and provide all members of the community with opportunities to get involved.
Wild Ground Reserves Officer, Catrin Davies said, “We are really excited about our new project in Johnstown where we will be managing woodland, grassland and ponds to improve habitats for wildlife.”
“Our first volunteer session starts on Friday 7th February. We will then run weekly sessions every Friday from 10 am to 1 pm . Volunteers will get the experience of working in all 3 of our nature reserves but we do ask people to book with us before they attend .”
“No experience is necessary just a willingness to get stuck in . Our volunteer sessions will be fun and sociable with the opportunity to help wildlife and learn new skills”
The project aims to improve the biodiversity currently on-site with hedge planting, tree maintenance, and pond creation which will help the important population of great crested newts.
