Meet new friends and have a great time while caring for your local countryside and parks. Volunteers come from all walks of life and no previous experience is necessary, you just need to be 16 years of age or older.
Volunteers help with practical conservation projects, which can include:
- Dry stone walling
- Fence construction
- Tree planting
- Improving footpaths
This is a great opportunity for anyone who loves the outdoors and cares about the environment to help preserve it for future generations. You’ll be supported by the Countryside, Parks and Open Spaces team at Kirklees Council.
People with disabilities are welcome – please ring to discuss what support you might need as some of the site is only accessible by rough tracks and there are some slopes.
Please note there are no toilets on site.
Time commitment: Whatever you can give, whenever you can give it. After some initial basic training you are free to help out on our sites whenever you want.
Locations: Across Kirklees.
Training: You will receive full training to complete the tasks set and all tools are provided. You just need to wear old clothes, waterproofs, (or sun-block in the summer), sturdy boots with a good grip or Wellingtons and bring a packed lunch and drink.
