Improve your local environment and help nurture wildlife at one of Berrylands Nature Reserve’s community volunteer days.

Recent sessions uncovered a lost path, haloed a magnificent oak tree, improved drainage (efforts continuing), cleared brambles and historic litter, and thinned blackthorn, using it to create a shelter for birds and small mammals and a habitat for creepy crawlies.

“There is so much to do to care for our local green spaces at this time of the year, so any time you can contribute would, as always, be greatly appreciated,” said the nature reserve’s treasurer Andrew Irving. “There will be some task to suit everyone, regardless of age, ability or experience.”

Volunteers meet outside Berrylands Scout Hut in Stirling Walk off Raeburn Avenue before being assigned tasks. Tools are provided; all you need is sturdy shoes or wellies, and clothes you don’t mind getting a little bit grubby.

“We will even keep you supplied with warm drinks and biscuits as a bribe to say thanks for coming along!” said Andrew.

If you have any questions about volunteering at the reserve email berrylandsnr@gmail.com. To find out more about the nature reserve and its upcoming volunteer days visit www.berrylandsnaturereserve.org
