Get involved in habitat management

Learn outdoor skills from our skilled land management team, and learn to love nature even more.

It’s a great way to meet people and boost your mental health, all while giving back by looking after the outdoor spaces for you and others in your community to enjoy.

Upcoming habitat projects

We need volunteers on Sunday 21 January 2024 10am – 1pm. We’ll be at 1620s House and Garden at Donington le Heath doing woodland work, including cutting back vegetation alongside paths and coppicing.

Come in sturdy footwear and dress for the weather with a waterproof. If you have work gloves please come in them – if not they can be supplied. We will bring hand tools, such as rakes etc and biscuits. Let’s make a difference to this lovely area!

Our Smile project tackles isolation and loneliness.

Some people don’t speak to anyone for days, if not weeks and months.

We bring local people together to make meaningful connections and give them the tools to break the silence.

By volunteering, you’ll help people Smile again – and no doubt you will, too!

Connecting with nature

We host a series of outdoor activities for pre-schoolers across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

As a volunteer you can support with delivering sessions, prepping craft materials, and reading stories in the woods. This experience is great for anyone who is looking for experience in childcare, or anyone who loves to look after little ones and nature.
