South East Programme of Events for Volunteers
The South East team is pleased to announce its programme of events for volunteers. The programme has been developed following your feedback at events throughout last year and the regional survey which was carried out in May.
Our networking events are designed to bring volunteers and staff together to say thanks and recognise the commitment you give to woods and trees in the region. We also use the occasions to showcase conservation and restoration work carried out at our woods and share information on projects and organisations of interest.
The training schedule has been designed to give specific role support and develop areas of interest as requested by you, our volunteers.
A few dates are still being finalised however we ask that you still register your interest if you’d like to join us on the day.
