Southampton University Conservation Volunteers Telephone: 02380 402593E-Mail: [email protected]Website: http://sucv.weebly.com/ A student society at the University of Southampton, undertaking habitat conservation tasks in Southampton and the surrounding countryside. Every Sunday in term time we head out to different locations in the countryside surrounding Southampton and help local nature reserves out. This can involve tree felling, coppicing, planting, digging, fighting your way through brambles, and making huge fires- sometimes we bake spuds in the fire too! Residential trips (normally Friday to Sunday are held once a term) are a bit farther afield and can lead us anywhere from Brownsea Island, Ireland and Exmoor to the Isle of Wight! As well as all the mud and biscuits we have lots of socials.
