Volunteering

We run volunteering days at our Hazeland and Pudding Brook Wood sites to care for and develop the land. The volunteer role focuses on conservation and maintenance tasks, including tree-planting in the winter months. The role also includes the opportunity to take part in biodiversity monitoring as well as supporting events throughout the year. We would love to have you come and join our volunteering team.
