Conservation & Nature Society
Welcome to a new term!
Our upcoming events are:
- Practical Session: Wednesday 12th December, 1:15pm Portland steps (lakeside) : We will be working with the Highfields Park Ranger this week, on a variety of tasks including bramble removal, copse thinning and williow weaving. Please bring suitable footwear and waterproofs.
New committee results!!
Thanks to everyone who voted and applied, there were lots of brilliant applications! The results are:
- Refreshment Coordinator - Jamie Cailean Harrigan-Branch
- Assistant Garden Coordinator - Sonja Bottomer
- Outreach Officers - Hannah Smith and Rajan Jandu
Please don't be disheartened if you didn't get a role you applied for! Full committee elections will be held in the spring, so it really won't be long before there are more opportunities to be on committee!
The Photography competition has now closed, look out for the winners and our 2019 calander soon!
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!
