Depending on the length of tim you would like to spend up in the reserve with us we might have time to complete a combination of the ablove tasks. If there is something in particular that you would like your group to do or none of the above activities are quite right  contact Jen Pilkington on

The Conservation Club from Santes Tydful enjoying some 'seed-bombing' after a day of clearing the dead bracken from the area to be seeded.


All our staff and volunteers are fully police checked and have vast experience working with a wide range of groups of all ages, backgroups and experiences. Your group will be fully guided through all the tasks by our team.​

Please be aware that there are no toilet facilities, running water or covered areas within the reserve. Whilst we are happy to provide all the tools, protective equipment and materials your group will need during their visit we are unable to provide waterproof clothing and footwear. The group will also need to provide it's own transport to and from the reserve and at least one member of staff will be required to stay with the group for the duration of the visit.
