We’d love to see you at our Scotland Volunteering Conference 28 & 29 September
We have over 60 bookings already for our first ever Scotland volunteering conference, which is fantastic news!
For those Scotland volunteers who haven’t booked your places yet, we think you’ll love what we have on offer over the two days.
There’s a chance to hear from our Loch Arkaig Pine Forest team about plans for this very special ancient Caledonian pine forest site and the wildlife there.
Other speakers will include Carol Evans, Woodland Trust Scotland Director, Syd House, former District Conservator of Forestry Commission Scotland, and Michael Peacock, Head of Engagement and Volunteering with the Woodland Trust.
Workshops will hopefully be fun and informative, and vary from building a life size sea eagle nest, to tree ID and a making chocolate with wild plant ingredients workshop.
In the evening there will be drinks, and an evening meal. Peter Cairns, founding member of ‘Scotland, the Big Picture’, which is a group of rewilding-minded wildlife and landscape photographers, will be delivering our evening talk before dinner.
The second day is an optional extra day and we’ll be taking you on a tree walk in the vicinity of Dunkeld and Birnam, with a mixture of tree ID and ancient tree recording, and finishing off with a picnic lunch.
We can contribute to expenses for travel and accommodation and you are welcome to book for a plus one.
