Calling all heathland habitat helpers!

Calling all heathland habitat helpers!

Added at 18:55 on 03 January 2024


The Surrey Heathland Partnership volunteers carry out practical work in the countryside in Guildford & Woking boroughs to enhance and maintain the natural beauty of our area. We rely on you to help us achieve these aims. If you have time on your hands this Winter, and are aged over 16, why not join us on one of our Conservation Crew days?

H E A T H L A N D Volunteer Information: The majority of activities over the wintertime focus on clearing invasive scrub, such as birch and pine, using hand tools. Left unchecked these species will out-compete the heathland species and the habitat would be lost. All tasks are led by trained leaders who will instruct you on the day’s activities. All tasks start at 10am at the meeting point and finish at 3pm. Please wear appropriate clothing with regard to the work and the weather, especially stout footwear. There are regular tea breaks, but please bring a packed lunch if you plan to stay all day, as well as a reusable cup for warm drinks. No previous experience necessary as we provide all the tools, protective clothing, and instruction to ensure that you have an enjoyable day – all you need is enthusiasm! 

Please email to let us know in advance that you would like to volunteer and for further information.
