What can I do?

Whether you want to bring a corporate team to do something different or help out with practical conservation tasks then Sherwood Pines is the place for you.

We have a range of opportunities to get involved including: 

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.

Corporate Task Days

Looking for a unique experience for your team? Let the Forestry Commission show you something completely different!


2014 marks 100 years since the start of the First World War and throughout the centenary we’ll be working on a commemorative project to honour the lives of those who served in and were affected by the war.

Practical Conservation

There is no regular group working in Sherwood Pines but both Positive Action and Woodland Workout groups can be found in Sherwood Pines at some point in the year.

Both groups are based in North Nottinghamshire and would be very happy to have you join in.

To find out more about each of the opportunities above please give us a call.
