I have also volunteered for the wildlife trust situated at Chimney Meadows as a key volunteer using my skills as a landscape architect. With this I helped with the design and implementation of wetland enhancement project linked with the million pond project. This created habits and habit improvement for aquatic species, such as dragon flies and damsel flies. Within a year an Otter was spotted, the following year Water voles and Snipe which are not such a rare sight.
Volunteering also included designing & building a pond that was laid by the RAF under my supervision. This was to the addition planting of hedgerows and research work for management plans which contributed to best practice application across their many reserves.
