Join and Get Involved: Volunteer
Jersey Conservation Volunteers
The Jersey Conservation Volunteers (JCV) look after the wildlife and habitats on land owned by The National Trust and The States of Jersey. Everyone is welcome, just turn up wearing appropriate clothing and footwear, and bring along a pair of gardening gloves. It’s a really friendly and social affair and at the end of each task your hard work is usually rewarded with tea and cake. The Group meet once a month on a Sunday morning between November and May.
Volunteers will get a chance to learn more about the important environmental issues facing our Island’s countryside, such as:
- Invasive plants and animals
- Habitat restoration and enhancement
- Threatened species
Over the course of the past few years the Jersey Conservation Volunteers have undertaken a range of challenging tasks around Jersey, often in some of the most scenic parts of the Island. Last winter the team helped to:
- Restore the heathland and grassland around the Iron Age fort at Cȃtel de Lecq.
- Enhance floral diversity within the Trust’s new meadow in Waterworks Valley.
- Clear the invasive Hottentot Fig at Noirmont.
- Coppice gorse at Devil’s hole.
- Manage young woodland in Vallee des Vaux.
Volunteers receive monthly email reminders the week before each task.
