Solihull Conservation Volunteers

WHAT WORK DO WE CARRY OUT?

Activities

We carry out a wide variety of conservation work.

Woodland

Our work in woodland includes the selective removal of invasive introduced species. We are also responsible for coppicing, making new rides to improve access and improving habitat particularly for butterflies.

Planting

We plant native trees, hedges and wildflowers to improve habitat for wildlife.

Site Management

Our management of sites includes pond clearance, hedgelaying and meadow management.

Construction

We carry out a variety of construction tasks including laying paths, erecting and repairing fencing as well as building sleeper bridges and stiles.

HOW DO WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE DOING?

All our tasks are coordinated with Solihull Council as part of their conservation plans. Our work is coordinated with the work of other conservation groups as well as Solihull council park rangers and contractors.

The tasks are lead by a trained group member experienced in the work. Full instruction on tool use, working methods and safety are given. Safety equipment is provided and several group members are trained in first aid.
