Experience of GPAG members and financial cost
The Gravel Pits Action Group is made from volunteers who hold life time experience of involvement with conservation. We do not charge for these activities thereby allowing all schools the chance to learn for free about nature from experts. We only ask for a small donation to cover the cost in maintance of old and the replacement of new equipment. Pond dipping is an optional activity.
