Volunteering

We rely on volunteers to help us carry out the important work of conserving the Wyre forest, its wildflower meadows and traditional orchards.

The Weekly volunteer program has work parties on a Wednesday and Thursday in partnership with Natural England and Worcestershire County Council. The kind of work you can help with changes with the seasons (find out more below).

Many of our volunteers have been working with us for 5 years and enjoy the diverse range of activities. We welcome new people to join the team, whether you are looking to start a career in conservation, simply wish to meet new people, work outside, stay fit and active and make a difference to the environment in which you live.
