The Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project has recently set up a conservation group, with funding from the Landfill Communities Fund through WREN, and is looking for enthusiastic and willing volunteers to help maintain and improve chalk streams in March at Welton le Wold.

Volunteers will be involved in the practical conservation of the chalk streams and their banks, helping to provide and improve the habitats of local wildlife including trout, otters and water voles.

No experience is needed, but you must be physically fit and confident when working near or in water. Safety training will be provided to volunteers in the sessions.

Give a helping hand to a local habitat on Saturday March 14 at Welton le Wold, from 10am until 3pm.

To sign up contact Will Bartle, Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Monitoring Officer, on William.bartle@lincolnshire.gov.uk or phone Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project on 01507 609740.
