Shadow rangers - voluntary scheme
We are looking for individuals with an interest in pursuing a career in countryside management for our voluntary scheme. Successful applicants will be given training and development opportunities by work shadowing current countryside management staff. This is a six month scheme that runs twice a year.
Find out more about the scheme, what opportunities are available at Salcey Forest and how to apply:
We meet twice a month, generally the first Tuesday at a woodland around Silverstone (such as Hazelborough Woods) and the third Wednesday at Salcey Forest.
Tasks undertaken are a mixture of conservation project work and site management including clearing vegetation, removing old tree tubes, coppicing and much more.
No experience is needed and all tools, training and tea and biscuits will be provided.
If your organisation is given volunteering days and would like to help us with our practical tasks, then get in touch to see what is on offer.
