Nature reserve woodsmen/women

We have our main nature reserve at Sewards End  and two smaller ones in Hempstead and Wimbish.

All three need habitat management work involving scrub clearance, maintaining the hedges and grasslands and woodland coppicing.

You will work with a group of volunteers about once a month.


If you can dig your own garden and trim your hedges you are fit enough.

You will be using hand-tools only (supplied) unless you have relevant experience and training in the use of chain-saws and brush-cutters
