Last August we started running volunteer work days at Hazeland, which have been really enjoyable, and also absolutely essential for getting the land ready for tree planting. Huge thanks to everyone who has been involved so far!

Our plan is to hold at least two volunteer events at Hazeland every month. These will include butterfly, bat, badger and bird monitoring events; volunteer work days; forest schools; history days and much more, but over Winter we’re going to be mainly focused on tree planting.

Sadly, due to the coronavirus lockdown we have had to cancel all of our volunteer events in November. We are however, planning to hold tree planting days at Hazeland on Sunday December 6th, Wednesday December 9th, Tuesday December 15th and Saturday December 19th.

Spaces at all of our volunteer days are limited and these dates will all fill up very quickly. To enquire about availability or to be added to our reserve list, please email our administrator Dorian on dorian.wainwright@avonneedstrees.org.uk.

To be among the first to get information about volunteer days sent straight to you, please complete our online volunteer registration form:

Part 1 – https://forms.gle/5He3xnXmTmX7bhPX9
Part 2 –  https://forms.gle/Gm9GKKVLJcCATVrU9

Part 1 is basic information about you that we need for health and safety reasons. Part 2 is a handful of equalities questions which we use to make sure we’re reaching a diverse variety of communities across our region, and to feedback to our funders. Part 2 is completely anonymous and your answers cannot be linked back to you.

Everyone who volunteers at Hazeland must have completed both parts of this form before they can be allowed to work onsite.

Volunteers who’ve been on site can fill out our online evaluation form to let us know which parts of the day worked and which could be improved. It also asks some questions about what you learned from your experience which are essential for our funders;

Please do not complete this form until after you have done a volunteer day for us!

We look forward to seeing you at Hazeland!
