What can I do?

If you are interested in getting involved when we can safely return to the woodlands, please get in contact and tell us which area you live in and what you might be interested in getting involved with.  We welcome anyone who has a passion for the forest, who is happy to participate in practical tasks and who is at least 18 years old.

Tasks include clearing vegetation, removing old fences, collecting tree tubes, and pruning trees – all of which help to enhance the woodlands for our many visitors, as well as improve habitats for the wildlife living in the woods.

We also have options for litter picking, either individually or in small groups, as well as ecology surveys – both activities can be undertaken at a time to suit you.

No experience is needed as all tools and training are provided.

If you do not live in the Manchester area but would still like to volunteer, please get in touch as we are keen to get groups set up in other areas including Merseyside and Wigan.

Corporate groups

Corporate volunteering is currently on hold, however please feel free to drop us an email to register your interest.
