Welcome

Tier4 + Lockdown3 Stay at home. Don’t get it, dont spread it. 

It’s good news that we’ve now all had our first anti-Covid vaccination. We’ll have a good level of resistance by the time they allow 6-a-side volunteering at the end of March. But we will still be employing full protection measures.

Latest exploit

Getting down and dirty. (It will wash off)

Like everyone we’ve been through 2 periods of lockdown in 2020. Last July we restarted working in covid-aware ways, again delivering benefit in the countryside. Now, in 2021 the situation is again so threatening to health that, as an organisation we’ve suspended Wednesday working. Like Arnie said “We’ll be back!” but we can’t say just when.

What we do?

The Wednesday Conservation Volunteers are a roving  group of volunteers in south Hampshire who undertake practical conservation tasks to enhance and create valuable habitats and improve public access to them.

Who do we help?

Our aim is to assist land managers to meet their responsibilities for conservation. We work for a wide range of organisations, most of them public bodies, including Hampshire Countryside Service, National Trust and various local Councils.  See the previous dates page for a fascinating list of venues and tasks from recent years.

What do you achieve?

Learn new rural skills, build your confidence with the camaraderie of friends. Enjoy working outside in the best of Hampshire’s countryside knowing you’re making an active contribution to nature conservation, environment management and other related activities with public benefit.
