Country Park Conservation Volunteers are a diverse group of people who get together on a regular basis to carry out conservation tasks at our country parks.
A wide range of Country Parks are managed by Leicestershire County Council throughout the county. These sites have extensive facilities for visitors, but also comprise habitats for plants and animals. An important aim of their management is to protect and enhance the wildlife value, but with over 1000 acres to look after, the County Council’s Country Park rangers need your help!
If you would like to get fit, help local wildlife, learn new skills and maybe make some new friends, why not come along to one of our Conservation Volunteer Days?
What is in it for me?
How fit do I need to be?
Tasks are taken at your own pace and there are plenty of opportunities for refreshments. However, if you are unsure and wish to further discuss what is involved, please get in touch and we can give you more information.
What do I bring?
What is provided?
- Instruction on how to use tools safely
- Tools and equipment
- The reasons behind the task and how it will benefit the habitat and the wildlife that lives in it
- Refreshments - hot drinks and maybe even the odd chocolate biscuit or two
- Any specialist Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) relevant to the task
When can I start?
- Anytime! New volunteers are welcome to come along and join in the conservation tasks, but please get in touch to let us know in advance.
