Welcome to the LUUCV webpage! This society is perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors, nature, wildlife and environmental conservation.
We post all information about our trips and tasks on our facebook page, so follow us there to keep up to date!
LUUCV acts as a mobile work force, joining various conservation groups for tasks around Leeds, as well as working on our own site at Woodhouse Ridge.
Our aim is to help conserve and maintain the natural environment in the local area; this can involve anything from chopping down invasive trees, planting native species, creating microhabitats or maintenance of our pond and paths.
We also organise trips throughout the year to help out conservation groups across the UK, these have been to the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales and Flamborough Head. We have a brilliant annual trip to the Peak District which is a fun weekend spent in the beautiful countryside working alongside the local rangers clearing, chopping and protecting the natural environment - this normally involves building a great big bonfire! It is a very rewarding trip and is a great way to meet some lovely new people.
LUUCV also organise regular social events, which include Otley runs and nature walks!
A few highlights from the last year 2016/17 include:
- working with local organisations such as WRAG, friends of the Hollies and the RSPB
- film screenings and socials
- a trip to the Peak District in early December
- a trip to Duddon Valley in the Lake District in March
- lots of conservation work in Leeds' green spaces
- ...and much more!
So put on your old clothes, grab your wellies, and join LUU Conservation Volunteers!!

We meet most Sundays and some Saturdays, joining with local volunteering groups at various locations around the Leeds area, including WRAG and Friends of the Hollies.
These tasks vary, but the majority of the time we meet outside Parkinson Building at 10am and have a full day of conservation.
