The Conservators of Therfield Heath and Greens would like to hear from anyone interested in getting actively involved in the maintenance of the nature reserve on a voluntary basis.
They are hoping to set up a group of volunteers to take on practical tasks like scrub clearance, about once a month.
Clerk David Smith said: “Scrub clearance is an essential part of the site maintenance.
“The chalk grassland habitat of Therfield Heath is extremely scarce in this country. Historically, the chalk grassland was cropped short by grazing animals so the scrub never had a chance to take hold.
“If we do not tackle the encroaching scrub, we will lose the chalk grassland and its specialist inhabitants such as the chalkhill blue butterfly and the pasque flower.”
“If you would like to be part of an active team of practical volunteers, please get in touch with us.”
