Solihull Conservation Volunteers

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?

We have many working tasks and other events throughout the year - our calendar has all the details.

All you need to bring is sturdy boots or shoes and wear old clothes appropriate for the weather and task. If you are going to stay all day please bring a packed lunch, we can provide tea, coffee, orange squash and biscuits.

We can pick you up at Solihull railway station at about 10:00 on task days and bring you back after the task at about 16:00 depending on the task and time of year. Contact us for more information and directions if required before you come.

AM I THE RIGHT PERSON TO JOIN?

Yes, anybody over the age of 16 is welcome. You do not have to be strong or have any previous experience. You will quickly develop new skills and practical ability, as well as increasing your knowledge of nature, discovering more about the local area and making new friends.
