Youth Rangers

For 16 to 25 year olds

We have one group so come and join us as a volunteer at one or more sessions for practical conservation work at various green spaces. The aim is to help improve these areas for wildlife (and people) while having fun, learning new skills, gaining valuable experience and enhancing job and other volunteering prospects. No experience necessary. Everybody is very welcome.

Typical tasks: Activities may include coppicing, hedge planting, green woodworking, food growing and composting, meadow planting, surveying and monitoring wildlife, pond maintenance, bird/bat boxes, orchard maintenance, scrub clearance, maintaining Forest School sites, basic bushcraft and more.
