Essex Wildlife Trust

The Uttlesford Local Group of Essex Wildlife Trust runs a mobile Work Party that moves around the reserves as needed, carrying out the seasonal work that is needed to keep the reserves in good condition for wildlife.

Local Group Work Party

Suspension of Work Party events
In response to the current corona virus situation, and advice from Government, Essex Wildlife Trust has currently suspended all Work Party meetings for the time being, but intends to recommence urgent work in the autumn. We will review the situation as it develops, and hope that some level of conservation work can be carried out as soon as possible.

The Local Group runs events on its reserves throughout the year, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and some Sunday mornings, which start at 9.30 a.m. and finish around lunchtime. You do not have to be a member of the Essex Wildlife Trust to come along to these events.

We are always looking for new volunteers to join us, it is a great way to get to know the reserves and learn about wildlife. Volunteering is still subject to some of the government guidance on coronavirus for reopening work places so there is an induction process we must go through to ensure you are safe on working and to ensure the Trust is ‘Covid Secure’. To join us please send an email to and ask for a registration pack. You will be sent some information sheets and a volunteering form to fill in to give your basic details to Essex Wildlife Trust.  Details of our local work parties will then be emailed to you at regular intervals.
