Practical Conservation Volunteer

An opportunity to join a dedicated and enthusiastic group of volunteers on regular work parties, maintaining and improving public access facilities at Grizedale and other Forestry Commission woodlands in South Cumbria.

Everything from dry stone walling to bridge building, tree cutting to trail construction. If you don't mind getting wet and muddy this is for you!

There are work parties going out twice a month, usually the 4th Tuesday and the 2nd Thursday of the month, you don’t have to commit to every one, just come and get involved when you can.
