Calling all families to make a difference at RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands

RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands is set to host its 1st ever family volunteering day, giving young families a unique opportunity to get involved with a fun filled conservation activity, whilst helping their favourite nature reserve at the same time. In 2014, 3 RSPB reserves took part in a national pilot project to trial family volunteering days, which proved a great success. Now families can take part at Burton Mere Wetlands, near Neston, where staff have recently been busy removing non native sycamore trees from the ancient woodland, as they are a less suitable home for our beloved British wildlife. As part of this work, the site team now need to plant lots of young native trees to fill the gaps and are calling for families to lend a hand during the volunteering day. The free event is not only a chance for people to make a lasting difference to the site, but also a great way to help give nature a home on the reserve. Dan Trotman, Visitor Experience Manager for the RSPB Dee Estuary reserve, said:- "It’s a great opportunity for families to have a fun, conservation experience together, whilst finding out a bit more about what our wardens get up to on the reserve. The reserve is attracting an increasing number of keen young families and this is a brilliant opportunity to give the whole family an insight, and an input, into the essential conservation work that we do here. Taking part will hopefully leave children with a greater connection to their natural surroundings and a lifelong desire to continue supporting wildlife conservation into their adulthood. Plus, they’ll have a stronger bond to their favourite RSPB reserve; somewhere they can always visit and feel they have made a valued contribution." The family volunteering day takes place on Saturday, 28 November 2015, and families will have the option of booking onto either the morning session (10am to 12pm) or the afternoon session (1pm to 3pm). Further information about the event can be found online, or by speaking to the staff and volunteers in the visitor centre by calling into the reserve or by phoning:- 0151 353 8478.
