Welcome to The Conservation Volunteers in Bedfordshire – working to protect and enhance the environment across not only our home county, but also areas of Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire.
In the last 12 months our volunteers have completed 712 practical workdays on 37 sites, with tasks ranging from habitat creation to footpath clearance and waterways management to vegetable growing.
Working with local communities, our experienced project leaders provide the tools and expertise to enable volunteers to really make a difference, learning new skills along the way.
For a variety of environmental tasks join our Weekday Conservation Team. We meet Mondays through to Thursdays throughout the year (excluding Bank Holidays and the Christmas period) to tackle a wide variety of tasks such as meadow management, planting trees, coppicing, scrub clearance, hedge laying, countryside furniture construction or clearing ponds.
Everyone is welcome, whatever their age or background. All you need is suitable clothing, stout footwear, lunch and enthusiasm – everything else is provided for you. Check out our programme and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join us, or if you would like to receive a weekly email reminder of our upcoming tasks.
