Our project groups
Opportunities big and small – we need you! Be part of the solution.
Our project working groups are made up of volunteers and are driven by their interests, skills and experience. Whether you have a little or a lot of time or experience, we need supporters on every level, from helping to spread the word and share the messages to leading on a project, or creating a new one, it all helps.
Get in touch if you would like to get involved, see projects for individual contact details. If you see a gap for a new project and think you can help, let us know.
Butterfly Survey Group
Peveril Point and the Downs Local Nature Reserve
We worked with the Town Council in the process of designating the Downs as an Local Nature Reserve which became official at the launch in April 2023
Since the official launch, the site now has its own Friends of the Downs group which is hosted by the Town Council. The group get involved in ecological surveys, guided walks and events and some practical tasks. This year the group hosted their first event, the Big Summer Search, which was a day of wildlife surveying in a Bioblitz and helped add dozens of new species to the site list. If you would like to get involved in the Friends Group please get in touch.
