About this cause
We are a local action group, working with communities to bring people and the environment together, to improve the health and wellbeing of both. Practical conservation, awareness raising and focusing on the impacts of invasive non-native species, all lead to increased connection to nature. Our volunteers gain new skills, physical and mental health benefits, as well as creating increased community cohesion.
How this cause brings people in the community together
We'd like to provide opportunities for people to carry out conservation tasks in their community and promote greater social cohesion. The Covid-19 pandemic has led to isolation and fear of going outdoors. We'd like to help by offering fully supported activities, providing all the necessary resources, and build confidence to continue with conservation tasks independently.
