Countryside volunteers

Volunteering in our countryside

Formal volunteering groups have been suspended although some individuals may still be active using ‘social distancing’ guidance.

Contractors continue to undertake work at various countryside sites including tree maintenance, fencing etc.

There are many ways to get involved with your local countryside.

You can join a People, Projects and Partnerships (P3) group to improve access to the local countryside and encourage others to enjoy it.

You can help manage our countryside sites by joining a Friends Group, becoming a voluntary warden, or by letting us know what wildlife you see.

You can help keep our long distance paths enjoyable for all to use by adopting your favourite section to warden.

You can also contribute to the planning with the Joint Local Access Forum (JLAF).
