Events and training sessions for volunteers in the central region– You’re invited!

Half way through the year already, where has the time gone!


2019 has been a busy year so far – two volunteer network events and two training events have already taken place. There are still a number of events and training opportunities coming up during the rest of the year specifically for Woodland Trust volunteers and you are invited. These range from guided walks and talks to presentations about the work of the Woodland Trust both from a regional and national perspective and training courses which focus on tree identification and tree pests and diseases.


Why not come along and see what they are all about!


Our next volunteer event is taking place at Heartwood, where you’ll have the chance to meet Woodland Trust volunteers who have been involved in this huge woodland creation project for over 10 years. They’ll tell you all about the site and how they’ve contributed to its management. Woodland Trust staff members will be there to share with you (in a very novel way!) their campaigning work, specifically the ‘Woods under threat detector‘ volunteer role which supports the campaigns team. You’ll also be able to learn more about the ambitious Tree Charter and its role in connecting communities to the work of the Woodland Trust.

To book on to any of the volunteer network events contact me: amandabrookes@woodlandtrust.org.uk  / 07917895071.
