A group that runs and manages nature reserves throughout North East Wales, is hoping to attract new volunteers this new year.

Wild Ground, based in Wrexham, works to protect wildlife and enhance habitats and eco systems and its volunteers are involved in practical conservation at their nature reserves, for example in woodland, grassland and pond management and in habitat creation.

There is the opportunity to volunteer across Wrexham, Denbighshire and Flintshire, every day, from Monday to Friday, at one of the nature reserves.

Richard Aram, environmental project manager for Wild Ground, said: "We really welcome new volunteers to join our Reserves Team.

"Our sessions are very sociable with the opportunity to meet new people, have fun and enjoy the natural environment as well as helping wildlife, learning new skills, and boosting job prospects.

"We hold regular volunteering days, special events and one-off sessions.

"Please get in touch if you would like to help out at your local reserve, we hold volunteer sessions Monday to Friday at various locations across Wrexham, Denbighshire and Flintshire."

New for 2022 is the opportunity to join the friends of Llwyni Valley volunteer group who meet every Tuesday morning helping wildlife, making spaces greener and enhancing the environment at various nature reserves in the Connah's Quay area of Flintshire.

For all of Wild Ground's volunteering sessions, all experience levels are welcome and help is greatly appreciated whether for the whole day, once a week, once a month, individually or in a group.
