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 runs events on Trust reserves throughout the year, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and some Sunday mornings, which start at 9.30 a.m. and finish around Noon. You do not have to be a member of the Essex Wildlife Trust to come along to these events.

Volunteering is still subject to guidance from Essex Wildlife Trust on coronavirus, so there is an induction process we must go through for new volunteers to ensure you are safe on working and to ensure the Trust is ‘Covid Secure’. To join us please send an email to  volunteering@essexwt.org.uk and ask for a volunteering registration pack. You will be sent some information sheets and a volunteering form to fill in to give your basic details to Essex Wildlife Trust.

Details of work parties are posted here first as a list and then in calendar format. NOTE; (see the ‘Places to Visit’ page for details of the locations)
