Who are we?

Sutton Nature Conservation Volunteers (SNCV) is the main nature conservation organisation, solely operating in the London Borough of Sutton. We have been working on Sutton’s many wildlife sites since 1987.

Helping wildlife on Sutton’s doorstep

Our goals

Our key aims are;

  • to promote the value of nature sites and other green spaces around the borough and
  • encourage and enable people to take an active role in assisting with their maintenance and protection.

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 help look after 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 and you’ll discover that Task Days provide excellent opportunities to see some hidden wildlife gems!
In Sutton we are lucky to have a variety of habitats, including chalk grassland, woodland  and wetlands & ponds, which all help suppport an amazing variety of wildlife.
