Volunteering coming up

Coming up this month:

• Thurs 13th Aug – Woodland trail management – Rhydymwyn – 10 to 3
Join NEWWildlife to help us cut back the overhanging trees on our woodland trail and learn how to replace the wooden steps leading up to the woodland.
• Tues 18th Aug – Reptile survey – Knowle Hill, Buckley – 11 to 3
Join Reserve Officer Helen and the team to carry out a reptile survey at Knowle Hill and Lane End. There are several ‘tins’ located around the sites that absorb the sunlight, and reptiles love to use these to warm up. You are very likely to see adult common lizard, and as the females will have recently given birth to their young, we also hope to see juvenile lizards.
