The nation's forests are open, but please read our coronavirus guidance before you visit - read our guidance.

What can I do?

We have a range of opportunities to get involved including: 

Monday Group

This is a volunteer group for individuals with special needs who enjoy practical work such as digging holes for posts, moving woodchip and weeding.

Carers are required to supervise, but are also welcome to take part!

Active Forest Volunteer

Come and help out at Active Forest events at High Lodge.  We are looking for Sport Event Marshalls to help set up and monitor sections of the event route around the forest.  You will be vital in keeping participants safe, showing them where to go and cheering them on.


Thetford Improved Mountain Biking EnviRonment run regular build days to maintain, develop and improve the cycling trails within Thetford Forest.  See for more information. 

Volunteer at Forest Live 

Forest Live volunteer opportunities will be promoted here in 2021.
