Thetford Conservation Group
Thetford Conservation Group has been launched in Thetford aiming to give a wide range of people the chance to get close to nature and help look after some of the town’s fantastic green open spaces – which include a Site of Special Scientific Interest, scheduled ancient monuments, two woodlands and large stretches of beautiful riverside.
Thetford Conservation Group runs free activities, usually on both on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week, with a mixture of practical conservation tasks and opportunities to learn more about local natural history. You don’t have to be physically fit or strong, or have any previous knowledge or experience in order to take part – anyone can join in and make a positive difference for local wildlife. If aged 16-18 you will need signed parental consent, if under to be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
The group has already started to tackle a wide variety of tasks, from helping conserve rare wildflower species on Barnham Cross Common to planting bulbs and trees, and even creating a barn new woodland walk at Maine Street Woodland. If you are interested in joining in with any of the group’s activities, please contact Mark Webster via 01842 754 247 / 07553 388 551 or firstname.lastname@example.org
