21st March 

Meet at Portland steps at 1:15pm to complete an Easter Egg hunt followed by working in the Community Garden to do some planting (potatoes!). 
Please wear suitable footwear for walking across grass or working in mud, and have suitable clothing for the weather. 

Sessions typically last 2-3 hours but feel free to drop in or come for however long you want. 


If you enjoy nature and wish to help preserve it, or if you are simply looking for a fun and social outdoors activity, Consoc is for you!

Consoc is a student-run group that works together with local and national organisations in order to conserve our local green spaces. We visit Sites of Special Scientific Interest, nature reserves, parks and woodland. We adopt a hands-on approach for the betterment of the local environment and provide our members with an opportunity to gain valuable volunteer experience. We organise one-off trips to new sites as well as frequently revisiting ongoing projects - seeing the difference our work is making is very rewarding.

Besides our weekly practical sessions, we also hold events at weekends such as bird walks and nature food trails, and run a variety of socials from pub meets to bowling and film nights. We also run several weekends away each year, for example to the Peak District where we work in the hills with the Park Rangers!

Come and try a session at any time of the year! No membership required for the first few sessions!
