Archive Volunteer Wanted for Wildlife Trust

In 2020 the Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country will be celebrating 40 years since a group of pioneering conservationists started to form what became the first urban Wildlife Trust in the UK following their successful campaign to save Moseley Bog from development.

Over the past 40 years they have gathered a massive collection of archive materials from press cuttings to magazines and we need support from enthusiastic volunteers to help them sort, organise and digitally catalogue this information.

This volunteering opportunity will be based at our Centre of the Earth education centre which acts as their head office on any / all of the following dates between 10am and 4pm, however there may be opportunities to support this project remotely.
