Event description

Description

London Wildlife Trust is the habitat and wildlife delivery partner at Walthamstow Wetlands, repsonsible for working with volunteers to conserve and enhance the site's habitats for wildlife through practical conservation, surveying, education and community engagement.

As we're out in all weathers volunteers are advised to wear clothing suitable for the weather and outdoor practical work and sturdy boots. Bring a packed lunch and water, tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided by LWT. For volunteers traveling by bicycle there is a bike rack next to the Engine House and in front of the Coppermill Tower.

Times: 10am - 3pm

Meeting point: Volunteers meet at LWT toolstore, between Reservoir 5 and the back of the Coppermill Tower. It is a small blue container located next to a small brick building.

Activites: We have a range of activities each week across the site to improve the habitats from reducing sycamore and gorse, managing meadows, creating dead hedges, to litter picking and much more.

Saturday LWT contact Nadia Ward can be reached on 07772 085 185 or nward@wildlondon.org.uk

LWT will provide a short induction and all new volunteers will need to complete a registration form at your first session. All LWT volunteers must be aged over 16 years. Under-18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian with a written consent form provided. Expenses can be covered for travel within Zones 1-6 and for a lunch of £5 or under on completion of a short form and with receipts. Any equipment needed for practical conservation is provided by LWT, please wear suitable clothing for outdoor work and sturdy footwear. Please inform your team leader of any relevant medical conditions when completing your registration form.
