COVID-19 outbreak: From 2021-08-09 all areas of Scotland have moved "beyond level 0" in the a strategic framework released on 2021-06-22. Most legal restrictions on our activities have ended and we have increased our minibus capacity to allow for more volunteers without their own transport to come on task.
Please look at the task list page to see the programme and the remaining requirements upon volunteers to help suppress the virus.
The Lothians Conservation Volunteers carry out practical nature conservation work every weekend in and around Edinburgh and the Lothians for the benefit of wildlife, people and the environment.
Our autumn task programme is now available.
Due to the relaxation in social distancing requirements beyond level 0, we have increased our minibus capacity from 4 to 6 places on a trial basis. We still request that volunteers who are able make their own way to the task site wherever possible, both to reduce close contact and leave spaces free for those without transport. Face coverings are still mandatory and our other safety measures such as assigned seating plans and ventilation are still in place.
Our summer task programme is now available.
