Help us look after the Forest of Marston Vale

Volunteers are a huge part of our work force - we couldn't manage our sites without them. 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!

What to do

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.

If you aren't already registered as a volunteer, then you need to contact Jo on 01234 762608 or send her an email.

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.

Corporate groups

If you're part of a corporate group and would like to organise a volunteer task, you can contact Robina on 01234 762605 or send her an email for more information.


Help us plant more trees

You can choose to just hear about our events, or our campaigns and the work that we do locally. The more people that get involved, the quicker we'll be able to plant 5 million more trees and that can only be a good thing. Not just for the local area but for the planet.
