Have some free time and looking for a new challenge? Why not help preserve one of England’s rarest natural habitats.

The Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project has recently set up a conservation group, with funding from the Landfill Communities Fund through WREN, and is looking for enthusiastic and willing volunteers to help maintain and improve chalk streams throughout February and March.

Volunteers will be involved in the practical conservation of the chalk streams and their banks, helping to provide and improve the habitats of local wildlife including trout, otters and water voles.

No experience is needed, but you must be physically fit and confident when working near or in water.

Safety training will be provided to volunteers in the sessions.

Give a helping hand to a local habitat on:

Tuesday, February 24 - 10.30am to 3pm at Moorhouse Farm, Barton Street, Ashby-cum-Fenby, North East Lincolnshire, DN37 0RU

Saturday, March 7 – 10am to 3pm at Laceby Village, North East Lincolnshire. The work will be on the footpath, near the bridge as you come into the village past the Mini garage. Please park in the pub car park (Nags Head) and walk down.

Saturday, March 14 - 10am to 3pm at Welton-le-Wold

To sign up contact Will Bartle, Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Monitoring Officer on William.bartle@lincolnshire.gov.uk or call Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project 01507 609740.
