Event description
South Downs Youth Action is a volunteering programme for people aged 16-25 who want to make a difference for the environment!

About this Event

Are you aged 16-25 and want to make a difference for nature and the environment?

Join us in the South Downs National Park for an action day cutting back scrub to enhance the amazing wildflower meadows on Mill Hill. This is your chance to help and learn about one of the rarest habitats in the world, chalk grassland!

Our rangers need your help clearing young trees from chalk grassland, a habitat which is threatened by the encroachment of woodland. If we don't keep the wildflower meadows open, the huge number of rare butterflies, bees and orchids which need it will be lost.

A full plan of activities will be sent after registering.

Facilities:

  • Toilets and cafe available at Truleigh Hill Youth Hostel

What you'll need:

  • Packed lunch or snack
  • Drinking water
  • A passion for the environment!

What to wear:
