Conservation Volunteer Days

Conservation Volunteer Days

Conservation Volunteer Days (formerly known as ‘Work Parties’) are a great opportunity to get out and about in the countryside.
With no previous experience necessary, they offer the chance to try your hand at a wide variety of fun conservation tasks such as hedge-laying, planting trees, baling hay and much more. We hold many different days throughout the county each month. Why not come along and help us make a difference to Nottinghamshire’s wildlife?
Booking essential - please see the relevant contact details below.
