Established 1962 - the longest running local group in Britain!
Cambridge Conservation Volunteers have been providing practical help to nature reserves in and around Cambridge since 1962. We also work at sites elsewhere in East Anglia, the UK and Europe. See the map for some of our past and present work sites.

We work most Sundays throughout the year apart from the Spring when we keep clear of the nesting birds.

In Autumn and Winter we are cutting things down - coppicing, hedge laying and scrub cutting in woodland and nature reserves. In the Summer we are out in the fens raking reeds or in the river pulling up himalayan balsam.

We also have some favourite sites in Norfolk and Wales that we visit for a weekend during the year. Sometimes we go further a field for a week to Scotland or elsewhere in Europe.

We normally have social event every month - a meal at a local restaurant, a BBQ, a punt party or a walk in a nature reserve. Our monthly meeting is on the second Thursday of the month at the Devonshire Arms where we discuss group business.

We don't have a formal membership. Join the mailing list and come along on a Sunday or to the monthly meeting at the pub. Email [email protected] with questions.
