The Forest Town Nature Conservation Group (FTNCG) exists to conserve, protect, and improve the natural environment in Forest Town, Mansfield. We own and look after Spa Ponds Nature Reserve in Forest Town. Volunteer activities include planting trees, maintaining the bridleway, litter picking and biodiversity improvement. We hold volunteer work sessions at Spa Ponds once or twice a month all year round, usually starting around at 10am and meeting at the Clipstone Drive entrance opposite the Whitegates Pub.
We have gloves and tools for volunteers to use and recommend people wear long sleeves and sturdy shoes. During the summer, activities include balsam pulling, wildlife recording and litter picking. During the winter activities include creating hedges, removing branches to let more light in, and planting.
We will promote your training event via our website training diary, social media, newsletter and database.
