Solihull Conservation Volunteers

WHO WE ARE

Solihull Conservation Volunteers (SCV) is a small local independent voluntary group whose aim is to carry out practical conservation work in and around the Solihull area for the benefit of people and wildlife. Solihull Council supports us in our work.

We have working tasks on two Sundays a month throughout the year on a range of sites all over Solihull. We carry out a wide variety of work which includes habitat creation, footpath improvement, fencing and stile construction.

The age range of the membership varies from those in their early 20s to those over 60 and members come from a variety of backgrounds. The group contains some members who have been volunteers for over 15 years.

The group has been closely involved with the development of a number of Local Nature Reserves (LNRs) and we are always keen to work on new sites to gain new experience and provide fresh challenges.

New volunteers are always welcome. Please click here to find out more about getting involved.
