Dorset

Dorset is a fabulous county for wildlife, stretching from the heathlands of the Poole basin in the east across the limestone and chalk of Purbeck and the central Wessex downs to the heavy clays of Blackmore Vale in the north and Powerstock and Kingcombe in the west, with the famous Jurassic coast running from Weymouth into Devon with its famous fossils, crumbling cliffs and stunning landscapes. The wildlife and the conservation challenges are equally varied.

EuCAN CIC has embarked on a number of initiatives in Dorset which you are very welcome to join in with.

The Cerne Valley Community Landscape Project which has been generously funded by the Patsy Wood Trust between 2012 and 2018 anmd now continues into its seventh phase into 2019 (and beyond we hope). The activities are generally held on Thursdays. For further information, see our Cerne Valley page.

In 2012, EuCAN CIC merged with the Dorset Midweek Volunteers, formerly the BTCV Dorset midweek group. This energetic group meets every Wednesday (and other days occasionally as well) and will always welcome new members. Transport is available to the worksites from Weymouth and Dorchester and training, support and tuition are made available to less experienced members. For further information, go to the DMV page.

In 2014 EuCAN CIC merged with the Somerset Volunteers, another former BTCV group. This group meets every Tuesday  (and sometimes Wednesdays) to carry out tasks in south Somerset and north and west Dorset. For further info, click here.

Make a donation towards our volunteer work:  we are very pleased with the progress we have made in Dorset and Somerset with the formation of the Dorset Midweek Volunteers group and the establishment of several other habitat management and green therapy projects in the two counties, but all these rely on the generous support of funders, our members and friends, and the user bodies we carry out work for.
