Conservation Volunteer days

Stanley Lane by Daisy Brasington

We are running volunteering days for tree care and other conservation tasks at Hazeland and Pudding Brook Wood over May and June.

Young people aged 10-18 are able to join volunteering days as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian who will accept responsibility and provide constant supervision for that child throughout the session, and a parental supervision form is completed in advance.

11th June – ‘ALl things Trees’ day At Hazeland

Having spent two winters planting trees at Hazeland this event is a chance to celebrate and learn more about the trees at the site. Tree identification walks will be running morning and afternoon with tree-themed kids activities in the afternoon.

We hope you can join us!

Tree Identification Walks 11am and 2pm:

Would you like to learn more about identifying native British Trees? Join Neill Talbot, from Avellana Ecology, at our beautiful 34 acre Hazeland site this June, for an opportunity to learn more about identifying native British Trees. The trees will be in full leaf and with Neill as your guide you will learn common identifying features to familiarise yourselves with our native trees. The site features a range of habitats from riverside meadow and ancient woodland, to pasture and hedgerow with a wealth of trees to discover.

Families activity session 1.30 to 3.30pm:

To celebrate the wonderful diversity of trees at our Hazeland project we invite children aged 5-12 (with flexibility for accompanying siblings), accompanied by parents or carers, for an afternoon of tree themed activities and trails around the site. The sessions will be led by our very own John Chew who has run a number of hugely successful family sessions at the project bringing his sense of joy and discovery to all aspects of the natural world. Join him to explore the world of trees.

We will contact you about specific directions and other details once you have registered for an event. Please be aware that due to preserving the biodiversity at Hazeland there are no hardstanding paths and we are not able to allow dogs (other than assistance dogs) on site.

Places are free and we would like to thank the National Lottery Heritage Fund for their generosity.
