Task Days - Conservation in Action Right on Your Doorstep
We hold regular task days throughout the year.

- Erecting bird boxes during the winter months
- Litter collection and clearance during the spring, with Balsom and the meandering pathways being cleared during the Summer
- Bulb planting and haymaking in the summer.
We have a "bug hotel" (insect refuge), bird tables and bird boxes in many places - see how many you can find!!
