Wild Away Days

Wild Away Days

Join Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust for an away day that makes a difference!

As well as being valuable habitats and wildlife sanctuaries, our nature reserves are also essential resources for local people and communities. Reserves act as education centres for Nottinghamshire school children, hubs for volunteers to learn new skills and areas of relaxation, contemplation and play for local residents.

Benefits for you:

    Group activities enhance team bonds and boost morale Conservation tasks introduce new skills and improve communication outside the everyday working environment Enjoyment of a rewarding day in an inspirational setting The opportunity to engage and visibly contribute to the local environment

Benefits for us:

    Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust receives practical help on our nature reserves from highly motivated groups, completing work we wouldn’t otherwise be able to do Organisations and individuals, often without experience of wildlife or conservation, learn about the importance of conserving nature

Current Opportunities

During spring and summers months we will be tackling aliens by pulling Himalayan Balsam and making hay while the sun shines to keep our meadows blooming beautifully. Both of these tasks are available across the county. For more information about the spring and summer activities please download the information sheet here.

Further information about Autumn and winter activities can be downloaded from this separate sheet.
