Family Volunteering At RSPB Fairburn Ings

Local News

Gather the family together for a fun day out and get stuck in to give nature a helping hand with family volunteering at RSPB Fairburn Ings nature reserve, near Castleford.
Join the reserve team on Thursday 18 February, from 10-3 pm, to find out a little more about what goes on behind the scenes, and lend a hand to ensure Fairburn Ings remains a haven for wildlife.
Sally Granger, Visitor Experience Officer at Fairburn Ings said: “It’s a great opportunity for families to have a fun, wild experience together, whilst finding out a bit more about what our wardens get up to on the reserve.”
During this free event, families will take part in willow and birch cutting, which helps to maintain habitat for all kinds of wildlife on the reserve. The cut birch will then be used in a birch-animal weaving event on 6 March.
Sally added: “Fairburn Ings gets so many keen young families visiting the reserve, and family volunteering events are a brilliant opportunity to get involved and discover more about how they can give nature a home and help save nature.”
Children must be accompanied by an adult and due to limited places, booking is essential. Families are asked to bring their own packed lunch with them, however tea and coffee will be provided.
Further information about family volunteering can be found at, or speak to the staff and volunteers in the visitor centre by calling into the reserve or phoning 01977 628191.
