Volunteers are being encouraged to join a day of conservation work in Berrow dunes on Sunday, March 13th.

Bristol University Conservation Group will be making their annual visit to the Berrow Dunes Nature Reserve to undertake undertake sand fencing for erosion control on the foredunes – and they will be glad of any further additional help from local helpers.

Berrow Dunes has long been recognised as an important area for nature conservation.

Sedgemoor District Council’s Landscape Officer said: “The local nature reserve, owned and managed by Sedgemoor District Council is included within the Berrow Dunes Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The site supports one of the most diverse floras in Somerset, with at least 270 species of flowering plant being recorded in this area.”

Anyone wishing to help out should meet at 10.30am on Sunday at the Nature Reserve car park, wearing appropriate clothing, footwear and gloves.
