On Saturday 1 March 2014 the Conservation Team organised an event at Writtle College aimed at recruiting volunteers to carry out various surveys in the coming year. More than 60 people attended, showing interest in the work we are doing at Essex Wildlife Trust. Nearly everyone signed up to help with surveys and projects including Riversearch, River Wardens, The Badger Vaccinating project, Barn Owl monitoring, Hedgerow surveying and Grassland surveys.
Take a WildWalk around your local landscape and enjoy the wonders of nature, while helping it at the same time. Note the species and habitats you see and join The Wildlife Trusts in monitoring important and threatened wildlife as part of the ground-breaking Living Landscapes initiative.
Using a simple online mapping tool, WildWalks helps you to create walks across local areas where The Wildlife Trusts are undertaking landscape-scale conservation. There are more than 300 sites for you to choose from.
