If you love Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), why not become a volunteer?
The Cannock Chase AONB team is inviting nature lovers to join them on a series of volunteering days to help with conservation of important sites this spring.
The days include a range of jobs, such as heathland management, grass cutting and litter picking.
Emma Beaman, Assistant AONB Officer, said “Heading outside and taking part in nature conservation is a fantastic way to work as a group and give something back to the AONB. Being a part of the work we do is really rewarding and it’s a good way to meet likeminded people and to enjoy the great outdoors.”
The conservation days include heathland management at Shoal Hill Common on Monday 7 April, litter picking at Mill Green on Thursday 24 April, site preparation at Chasewater Country Park on Thursday 8 May, and grass cutting and collection at Muckley Corner on Wednesday 4 June.
The days start at 10am and will finish around 4pm. All equipment is provided, but you will need to bring a packed lunch and drinks if you stay for the whole day.
To reserve your free place on any of the volunteering days, please contact Emma Beaman on 01785 619186 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
