Volunteers play a massive part in the running of National Trust properties and this is no different at Wenlock Edge. We are very fortunate in that we have a small team of regular volunteers who come out with us every Tuesday, carrying an ever expanding range of jobs. Throughout Autumn and Winter jobs such as clearing vegetation from footpaths and geological exposures take priority as birds are not nesting. During Spring and Summer installing gates, clearing drains on footpaths and fencing are just a few of the tasks that keep us and them busy.
We also have volunteers who give their valuable time as and when they can, these volunteers tend to help out more with forestry operations.
We are regularly visited by the Wolverhampton National Trust Conservation Volunteers who carry out many different tasks, they recently made 50 bird boxes for our ongoing nest box project and seem to really enjoy scrub clearance and fires.
