Want to make a difference in your Community Forest?

We couldn’t do what we do without volunteers – they make up a huge part of our work force, from practical work, to fundraising and awareness raising, and we’d love you to join our team!

Why volunteer?

Whether you care about the environment or local landscape and want to physically get involved in the creation of the Forest, or you have some spare time and want to do something useful – volunteering gives you the opportunity to get experience in things you’ve never tried before, meet new people and feel part of a team.

What do our volunteers do?

Outdoors, they do everything from regular gardening and practical work at the Millennium Country Park, to repairing benches and coppicing woodland at our other sites. We have regular weekend rangers at the Park, and are looking for Wood Wardens across all of our other sites.

We also have a team of events and fundraising volunteers, who talk to people at all kinds of events about the work we do and how they can get involved, as well as helping at our own events throughout the year (from kids’ activities, to guided walks, to the Forest Family Fun Day).
