Seeking wood (and a woodworker!) To complement our bird and mammal monitoring programme, we are seeking support to run a nest – box building workshop. We would love:

  • Donations of recycled, off cut or surplus timber, hessian and shade cloth
  • Access to a shed that can hold a number of people working together
  • A woodworker or handyman willing to do a bit of prep and run a workshop – you will be paid from profits taken on the day once we’ve recovered the cost of materials.


Please contact libby.landcare@soln.org or phone 52376904 if you can help out.
