Weekly volunteer tasks on our reserves around Bournemouth, Poole and the Isle of Purbeck; tasks run 10-3 on Wednesdays or Thursdays and are a great way to get out and about, meet new people and help your local wildlife.

If you would like to get involved or would like more information, please contact Rick Sharp on 07810 770565, email [email protected] or head to the ARC Dorset Volunteer Facebook Group. Please remember to dress appropriately and bring lunch and lots of enthusiasm!
