Essex Wildlife Trust

The Uttlesford Local Group of Essex Wildlife Trust runs a mobile Work Party that moves around the reserves as needed, carrying out the seasonal work that is needed to keep the reserves in good condition for wildlife.

The Uttlesford Local Group of Essex Wildlife Trust usually runs a programme of events on the local reserves to carry out the management needed to keep them in good condition, and we normally welcome new members.

Unfortunately the current COVID crisis has led Essex Wildlife Trust to restrict the number of people who can be at a work party at any one time, and for the moment we are unable to take new volunteers.

All work parties are suspended during November and the situation will be reviewed on December 2nd

The nature reserves are still open to visits by the public, but please respect Government guidance on social distancing, and if you should happen to see a work party on your visit please maintain your distance.
