Rare habitat needs a helping hand
Kent Wildlife Trust needs volunteers to help conserve valuable wildlife habitat at Sandwich & Pegwell Bay National Nature Reserve.  New helpers are welcome to take part in tasks ranging from brush clearance to beach clean-ups to help maintain and improve habitats for a richer diversity of wildlife. 

Reserve volunteer, Richard Kinzler, will be leading a conservation task from 10am on Saturday 8th October to help restore an area of ancient sand dune pasture - a rare habitat found nowhere else in Kent.  Tasks are also held on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Volunteers are to meet at the Pegwell Bay Country Park Car Park.   All that is needed is warm clothes, sturdy footwear and a packed lunch.  Work gloves, tools and drinks will be provided. 

The country park is situated near Cliffsend village and is well signposted from the A256 between Ramsgate and Sandwich. 

For more information please call Tony Swandale on 07889 822412.
