There’s a lot happening on our coastline and many opportunities to volunteer with our partner organisations. From wildlife surveying to practical conservation tasks there’s something for everyone.
Durham County Council Countryside Rangers
Countryside Rangers carry out practical conservation tasks every Wednesday and once a month on a Saturday throughout the County. If you’d like further information about volunteering and how to get involved, please contact the Countryside Team on 03000 264 584 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Durham Wildlife Trust
From helping to manage the organisation through to hands on work, there’s a wide range of ways you can support your local Wildlife Trust. If you want to know more, please call 0191 584 3112 and ask to talk to someone about volunteering.
Little Tern Wardening
The Little Terns arrive at Crimdon from the west coast of Africa in May, settling on the sands at the mouth of the dene, resting and building up strength by feeding on small fish. These are one of Britain’s rarest sea birds and need help to ensure that they flourish.
If you have a little spare time during May to August and are interested in helping look after the Crimdon Little Terns then get in touch. No experience is necessary and every little bit of help is welcome.
For more information, contact Geoff Barber of Tees INCA on 01642 370 319 or email email@example.com.
Throughout the year we organise beach clean events and also support groups and individuals wishing to carry out litter picks on the beach and beach banks. Our events are usually displayed on the Litteraction website which can be found here.
