Who are we?

Sutton Nature Conservation Volunteers (SNCV) are the main nature conservation organisation operating in Sutton. We’ve been working to conserve and maintain Sutton’s many wildlife sites since 1987.

Helping wildlife on Sutton’s doorstep

Our goals

Our key aim is to conserve and improve sites of wildlife value in the borough.

What do we do?

We carry out practical maintenance and habitat management work throughout the year. These tasks include hedgelaying, coppicing, scrub clearance and fence construction. During the spring and summer, we also carry out ecological surveys and monitoring, recording plants and animals to help inform our management.

Sutton nature and wildlife

The sites that we work on vary in character and size, from small pockets of ‘green space’ to large Local Nature Reserves. Some of these sites have limited public access. Volunteer with us and you’ll discover that our task days provide excellent opportunities to see some hidden wildlife gems!
We are lucky to have a variety of habitats within Sutton, including chalk grassland, woodland  and wetlands & ponds, all of which we help to maintain and conserve for wildlife.
