Practical conservation task days

Join us for a practical conservation task day

Our Practical Conservation Task Days are up and running again and we have loads of opportunities for you to get stuck into!

We've put lots of useful hints and tips for what you need to bring along to your Task Day on the Practical Conservation Calendar link below. Please note that volunteers are no longer required to complete covid-19 checklists as stated in the Practical Conservation Calendar information, instead please familiarise yourself with our response to covid-19 and over-arching covid-19 risk assessment

We look forward to welcoming you on one of our Task Days very soon!

Autumn/Winter Practical Conservation Calendar

Register to volunteer

Have you attended a Practical Conservation Task Day and would like to become a volunteer? This online form is for you to use if you have already been on one of our task days and intend to volunteer again. We see your first task day as a 'taster session' and if you decide to volunteer again we ask you to register formally at this point using this form.

This form is not to register your interest or book your place, you do that by contacting the leader listed in the Practical Conservation Calendar for the task day you would like to attend.

Your role

Your details

For insurance purposes we need to know your date of birth. We also want to make sure people of all ages have the opportunity to get involved with us. If you are 16 or 17 we will ask that you provide a parental/ guardian consent form. Volunteers under the age of 16 will require a parent or guardian to accompany them.

Emergency contact details

Additional requirements

We want volunteering to be fully inclusive and consider your wellbeing if you start to volunteer with us. Please let us know if you have any access requirements, health conditions or medication you take that we should be aware of.
