Volunteering

One of the most fantastic things about The National Forest is that people can actually ‘get involved’ in its creation. This can be through planting a tree, community projects or even becoming a conservation volunteer.

There is a great variety of regular conservation volunteering opportunities at many sites across The National Forest working with partner organisations. New members to these groups are always welcome.

Calling all volunteers!

Would you like to be part of Timber, our new festival in the heart of the National Forest?

We’ve teamed up with Wild Rumpus, experienced producers of the award-winning Just So festival, to create the only international festival celebrating the transformative impact of forests.

It takes place 6 – 8 July 2018, at Feanedock in Moira.

We are looking for people who have skills, want to learn skills or want to try something totally new. We need volunteers for all sorts of roles, to make this festival happen.

To register your interest in being part of this extraordinary experience, go to http://timberfestival.org.uk/ and look for “How to get involved”, visit http://www.wildrumpus.org.uk/timber-volunteer/ or get in touch with callum.hogg@wildrumpus.org.uk

We look forward to seeing you there!
