Help us manage the Forest of Marston Vale

Volunteers are a huge part of our work force and we couldn't manage our sites without them - especially the Millennium Country Park and Grange Estate. We have regular, practical tasks for our volunteers where all tools and info are provided - all you need to do is let us know that you're coming along, wear old clothes and strong footwear!

So that we have an accurate idea of numbers, please let the person organising the task know that you are coming. Parking charges do not apply when volunteering, so make sure that you give your registration number when you sign in for this task to be white-listed for the day. There'll be plenty of tea and biscuits, but if you plan to stay all day please bring a packed lunch with you.

We do plan tasks for further ahead but they are obviously subject to change, due to weather, staffing and other issues. We always keep the next 3 months up to date on here as best we can, but please be aware that sometimes changes do occur. If you have any questions about a task, the best person to ask is the person listed in the contact section.
