Ipswich midweek team

Suffolk’s nature reserves and wild areas are home to a fantastic variety of rare plants and animals. Our midweek teams help look after some of these special places by managing them in traditional ways such as coppicing woodlands in winter and mowing meadows in summer.

Our midweek volunteer team runs every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday - it is a great way to learn new skills and meet people. A mini bus runs collections from Ipswich and takes you on to your area of work for the day. The work is varied and interesting and covers many different habitiats.

No experience necessary…
Anyone over 16 can join the team. You need to be fit enough to carry out some physical work but you don’t have to make a great commitment because any time you can spare helps. All you need to bring is suitable footwear for the outdoors, a packed lunch and drink, wet weather outerwear and wear clothes you don’t mind getting a bit grubby.

Make new friends
Joining the team is a great way to meet people and get some fresh air and exercise
