Volunteers meet to manage the park in the winter (September–April). See theEvents Programme for the date of the next workday.
From the beginning of May until the end of August, the park is open to visitors every Sunday afternoon from 2 - 4 p.m. Two wardens are needed in the park during this time. If you can help with wardening any Sunday, please contact Paul Loughnane or Hilary Ash. The more people on the rota the better!
Wirral Wildlife’s small fund raising team arranges purchase of stock for sale at various events throughout the year. Our presence on these occasions also helps to raise our profile with the general public.
The team raises valuable funds, which go towards safeguarding wildlife and habitats in our area. Extra help is always appreciated, so please get in touch if you would like to help in this way - no sales experience necessary!
We have a team of around 20 volunteer biological recorders, including people skilled in identifying plants, birds, spiders, bugs, bees, butterflies and moths. We have links to the various specialist societes such as CAWOS and Butterfly Conservation. Each year we survey 15-20 sites in the Wirral peninsula, including Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Sites of Biological Importance and the occasional farm. Habitats include woodland, heathland, ponds, marshes, sand dunes, grasslands - we are very fortunate in the range of wildlife Wirral has to offer.
The results are used to guide land managers, update the SBI system, occasionally fight a planning application, and through rECOrd (the local biological records centre for the Cheshire region) to update distribution maps. This shows us how common (or not) a species is, and can track changes such as invertebrates moving as the climate changes.
Interested? Training is available and new recorders always go out with an experienced person.
