A significant milestone has been achieved by local volunteers who have given over 10,000 hours to the many conservation projects being delivered as part of the Avalon Marshes Landscape Partnership.
The projects, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, have been designed to improve the area for wildlife and heritage as well as the thousands of people who visit the area each year. Over the last two and a half years 400 volunteers have been involved in practical conservation work, reconstructing replicas of ancient trackways and logboats, surveying local footpaths and assisting at public events.
Volunteer Development Officer, Kevin Anderson, said “This is a fantastic achievement by our existing volunteers as well as the many local people recruited by the partner organisations to deliver these exciting projects. Their efforts have made a significant contribution to the Avalon Marshes, which I am sure will be enjoyed by visitors for many years to come.”
