Coastal Volunteer Group - West Sands

Saturday, February 9, 2019
10am - 1pm
Get outside, get some exercise and help our environment by joining our Coastal Volunteer Group based at West Sands, St. Andrews. We’ll be carrying out a range of environmental conservation tasks around West Sands and the wider North East Fife area. The tasks undertaken will vary depending on the weather but may include removal of non-native or invasive plant species, dune grass transplanting and tree planting. No experience is necessary as our Rangers will provide any training needed. Just bring sturdy footwear, waterproofs and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty!

The tasks carried out may require some physical effort and will require walking over uneven terrain with steep slopes where there may be no paths. Volunteers will need to have the capability to work in this environment.

If you want any further information on the group, please just get in touch with our ranger Gavin by email on Gavin.Legg@fifecountryside .co.uk or by telephone on 07984 152558
