Established in 1985 we are involved in approximately a dozen different sites a year, mainly within the "Wirral Hundred", sometimes further afield.
The WCV work in close association with the local Wildlife Trust on their reserves at New Ferry Butterfly Park and the ancient woodland of Thornton Wood. We work with Wirral Ranger Service on lowland heath restoration projects and woodland craft demonstrations. In south Wirral we work with the ranger service there, mainly hedge laying along the Wirral Way. We work with friends groups and occasionally private bodies.
We work about twice a month meeting on either a Saturday or Sunday with more frequent events in the winter season.
Tasks start at 9.30 a.m. until 3 or 4 p.m. There is often an apres task at the local hostelry and there are impromptu socials throughout the year.
A current listing of events can be found on our Facebook page.
There is no need to book: you can find an event from the programme and just turn up. An email or phone call is useful, however, so we can look out for you.
Bring a packed lunch, boots, working gloves and water proofs. What's in it for you? Fresh air, exercise, discover some new talents, learn some natural history and spend a day with like-minded people.
