Eiger’s Wild Work Day with the Surrey Wildlife Trust

As part of the company’s aim to be carbon neutral, a select group of Eiger volunteers joined the Surrey Wildlife Trust in Norbury Park for a Wild Work Day.

Activities included scrub clearance using hand tools to help preserve the rare heathland in the park. The group learned how to use tree poppers and loppers, as well as wielding pickaxes and bowsaws.

The reasons why we wanted to volunteer to help the SWT is explained in this extract from their website: Surrey has some 300ha of Flower-rich chalk grassland, alive with the excited humming of bees and beautiful dancing butterflies. The Trust manages some 15 chalk grassland sites.
