Event description

Description

London Wildlife Trust is the habitat and wildlife delivery partner at Walthamstow Wetlands, responsible 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 strudy boots (preferably steel toe capped) and clothing suitable for the weather and outdoor practical work. Please bring a packed lunch and water, tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided by LWT. For volunteers traveling by bicycle there are bike racks at Engine House and Coppermill Tower.

Times: 10am - 3pm

Meeting point: Volunteers please meet Charlie at the Engine House today.

Activities: We are working on the meadow today, mowing and raking it to prevent nutrient enrichment. We'll leave a margin along the edge, pushing back the encroaching scrub from the River Lea side, but leaving a standing strip of vegetation as food and cover for wildlife.

Wednesday contact is LWT Ranger Charlie Owens on 07971315746 or email cowens@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.
