Introduction

We are a group of volunteers who do practical environmental conservation in Edinburgh and the Lothians nearly every Sunday of the year. We work for a variety of clients for the benefit of the wildlife, environment and people of Scotland.

It's completely free and you don't need any previous experience: we'll provide the transport and all the tools, training and safety equipment that you need.
