We’re looking for volunteers to help with practical conservation work on Tuesdays from November 2022 – March 2023 as our new schedule for autumn and winter has been published.

The volunteers regularly undertake practical conservation work. If you would like to work outdoors in the beautiful Coast & Heaths, help your local environment and meet some new people, then why not join us!

We sometimes work on projects with community and corporate volunteers, so you may be working alongside such groups. Training is offered, for example in first aid, should you be interested.

You work for as long as you wish and at your own pace. Knowledge of landscape, heritage, wildlife and conservation is not needed, you can learn as you go along. Locations for 2022-23 include Tunstall, Southwold, Wenhaston, Blaxhall and Dodnash.

For more information on any of the volunteering opportunities and roles within the Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, please contact Countryside Project Officer Neil Lister. Most tasks start at 9.30 am and finish at 3.00 pm. If times are different you will be notified.
