MORE volunteers are needed to help put on community events at a Nailsea nature reserve.

More than 577 people visited Stock Way North Nature Reserve this year.

Schools, brownie groups and residential homes visited the attraction to take part in pond dipping, treasure hunts, plant identification, tours, talks and quizzes.

An impressive 180 types of plants, 35 species of bird, 15 butterflies and nine dragonflies live at the reserve as well as frogs, newts, fungi, mammals and insects.

The Friends of Stock Way North Nature Reserve are always looking for new volunteers to help manage the site and assist with weekly open days.

The nature reserve will be open each Wednesday from 2-5pm from April-August giving people the opportunity to enjoy tours as well as some pond dipping.
