White Cliffs Countryside Partnership organises a regular programme of volunteer conservation events throughout the year.Why come on a volunteer task?
Going on a volunteer task with us is good for your general wellbeing, and helps you to keep fit. It's also a good opportunity to improve sites for both wildlife and local people, while learning about nature and meeting other people.Joining a conservation task
New volunteers are always welcome to join us and help care for the countryside. Everyone is welcome, you don't have to be a member. Events are free and no experience is needed. You are not obliged to come out on a regular basis, just to the events that interest you.
If you are under 18 you must be accompanied by a responsible adult. You are advised to check that your tetanus injections are up to date. Anyone suffering from any serious health condition is advised to check with their doctor before attending a conservation event. Please inform the task leader of any health condition, in confidence, at the start of the day.
Choose a task and then find out where we are meeting using the meeting point column. If you are a new volunteer contact the leader - their initials are in brackets next to the event details, so that they know you are coming. For a registration form, or for more information please contact Sue Bradford at the Dover office on 01304 241806.What you need to bring with you
Bring water to drink, or a flask if you prefer a hot drink, and a packed lunch if you intend to stay all day. We usually provide water, squash, tea and biscuits. We provide an experienced leader, training and supervision, tools and gloves, but please bring your own gloves if you have them.What you should wear
You should wear old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty or torn. Please wear long sleeved shirts to stop scratches and stings to your arms. Wear boots or shoes with good grip and preferably those that support your ankle. Bring waterproofs if it forecasts rain, sun hat and suntan lotion in hot weather. Please bring wellies if the details ask you to.
You can download a copy of our leaflet from the column to your right, or details can be found in the events sections.
