Will Jones, Wild East Devon Engagement & Participation Officer:

The Tuesday Task Force help us to maintain and grow the best nature reserve in England as voted in 2019. The volunteer team show an unwavering commitment to the reserve and can see the fruits of their labour throughout the year leading to a connection to last a lifetime.

Under the guidance of our Wild East Devon Ranger Dave and Seaton Wetlands Assistant Warden Izzi, the Tuesday Task Force group helps with practical site management at the award-winning Seaton Wetlands Nature Reserve across all aspects of its management.

This group meets every Tuesday from 9.30am until around lunchtime.

Tasks could involve construction work such as fencing, boardwalk building and bridge repairs as well as the maintenance of the hides, platforms and hedgerows. The group also helps to develop and maintain natural habitats to encourage wildlife at the site.

Volunteers have the opportunity to develop new practical skills and an understanding of habitat management techniques. No previous experience is necessary, all volunteers are offered first aid training and there are plenty of social events throughout the year. Booking is via the online volunteer portal.

All of the volunteers are offered training including first aid and there are plenty of social events throughout the year.
