Join us for a day of practical conservation and reserve management tasks at our suite of sites in Barnsley. There’s always plenty to do whatever the season; mowing, raking, woodland management to name a few. There are 8 different sites which the Trust manages in Barnsley with a mixture of habitats including lovely wildflower meadows, woodland and paths that need to be maintained for the public. Volunteers rotate around these sites with a different location for task days every week.
