Who are we?

Since our formation in 1999, the Friends have helped Bournemouth Borough Council's Countryside Officer's manage Kinson Common, a Local Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest as Countryside Volunteers.


Our volunteer work

Litter-picking, guided walks,wildlife recording and monitoring the site for anti-social behaviour such as arson are part of our work as well as liasing with residents and visitors about any problems that may occur on site. We have also placed bird and bat boxes around the site and are also undertaking surveys of fungi and moths as well as planning other projects for future records.

In our Autumn/Winter work programme jobs such as scrub and gorse clearance are carried out.

New volunteers are always welcome!
