Volunteers roll up their sleeves

More volunteers have signed up to help out with conservation in Chichester.

 

A spokesman for Chichester Conservation Volunteers said: “We have been delighted recently to have several students join us who are doing their Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

 

“Last Sunday, we had a brilliant day at Heyshott Down clearing scrub to allow more delicate flowers to flourish, such as cowslips, the leaves of which the rare Duke of Burgundy butterfly lays its eggs on.

 

“Most Sundays we carry out conservation activities at a variety of sites and welcome new volunteers of any age.”

 

There is no subscription or commitment to attend the group regularly and this is an opportunity to engage in practical climate action to protect and enhance threatened habitat and promote biodiversity.
