We are establishing a regular restoration volunteer group in Eskdale Reserve and meet weekly.
Join other local people and make your mark in this significant ecological area. We are looking for regular volunteers and people who live locally to the reserve to build momentum and stop the spread of pest plants.
Join the Eskdale Reserve volunteers' Facebook Group here to keep updated.
