We are a new group (established in Nov 2011) our membership is now over 200 (October 2017) and steadily growing. Fund raising is a priority as we have many projects to tackle. Along with our sister blog Calderdale Wildlife and Calderdale Birds we have the area well covered for sightings and reports.You can come along to organised site visits, or just visit any time. We have over a mile of track suitable for wheelchairs, (RADAR key required) although in wet weather going can be muddy.

 

Volunteering

 We are always in need of volunteers as there are always things to do to maintain and improve the reserve for wildlife and visitors.

 There is no need to be physically fit,  just your support is always welcome. We have safety equipment in place and fully organised work parties.

 We have regular indoor meetings at nearby venues.

Come and join us at Cromwell Bottom Wildlife Group where we’re working to improve life for people as well as for the environment. Our volunteers do all sorts – clear reed beds, clean bird boxes, survey wild flowers, bash balsam, organise monthly activities on the reserve, maintain our bird feeding areas, bake for our events, raise funds, speak to other groups, host visiting groups.
You might like to join a monthly working day, or help improve our publicity, our hospitality or our stock of birdboxes. So whether your favourite tool is a computer, a wooden spoon or a hammer we could find something you’d enjoy doing with us.
You’ll find us on Facebook,
