There are many volunteers at work for saving wildlife in UK, even in our local area (Nailsea and North Somerset).
In this page, I will report to you the wildlife groups that I am involved in.
If you interested in wildlife and our work, please contact me from the contact form below the page.
Nailsea Environment & Wildlife Trust (NEWT)
Nailsea Environment & Wildlife Trust (NEWT, registered charity no 1132465) was formed in 2008 to purchase land with high wildlife value in the vicinity of Nailsea. In December 2009 the Trust acquired 6 acres of land at Moorend Spout with finance provided by YANSEC, the local distributors of the Landfill Communities Fund.
North Somerset Tree Wardens
North Somerset Tree Wardens The tree warden scheme helps people to look after their local trees and woods. It is run nationally by the Tree Council charity and co-ordinated locally in North Somerset by a management committee, which includes North Somerset Council’s tree officers. Tree wardens are volunteers who are passionate about trees, their local environment and local community. Tree wardens are supported by Nailsea Town Council, and will be provided with advice and guidance, information and training.
Stockway North Nature Reserve
The in-filled quarry in the centre of Nailsea has been converted into a nature reserve with the installation of a pond and bird nesting boxes and by planting trees. This reserve is managed by the Friends of Stockway North Nature Reserve, a group set up in 1998 with financial support from the local Councils and the administrators of the landfill tax (Yansec).
