The nature conservation organisation relies on more than 400 volunteers across the county to help with their work. This year they’re looking for people to get down and dirty on their nature reserves, undertaking practical conservation work to help wildlife and the environment.
Emma Wurmli, volunteer development officer for the Trust, explained “Many of our volunteer work parties right across Worcestershire are looking for extra pairs of hands to help out. We’ve got several beautiful nature reserves in north Worcestershire, in particular, that all need a helping hand to make them even better for the wildlife that live there.
“Our volunteers are vital to our work and involved in almost everything that we do – from helping on nature reserves to inspiring the next generation through our events and work with schools.
“We’re encouraging anyone who wants to work off their Christmas puds to make a new resolution and get involved this year. Volunteering offers people the chance to try something new, look afresh at the year ahead, get fit, meet new people and help our precious environment.”
