Central Region Face to Face events and online talks and gatherings for volunteers

We’ve organised some events and talks for Woodland Trust volunteers, with more being planned! These vary from guided walks on site, to training sessions and online talks – including one about UK mustelids!  

 

Virtual wardens gathering – via Zoom

30th June 2022 – 7pm-8.30pm

Our second ever wardens gathering is taking place on Thursday 30th June from 7pm-8.30pm on Zoom.
The wardens role is usually a solitary one and we’d like to give you the chance to meet up with other wardens. We’d love to hear about your experiences as a warden, give you the chance to ask any questions you may have and provide feedback. We will be grateful for your comments and suggestions so that we can check and review the way we support you. We can also tell you about some of the woodland projects that we are currently running, including our ‘Love your Woods’ campaign.
If you’d like to come along please let me know by emailing amandabrookes@woodlandtrust.org.uk so that I can get an idea of numbers and I’ll send you the Zoom link. Deadline for booking is Wednesday 29th June 2022.

Please confirm your attendance by emailing amandabrookes@woodlandtrust.org.uk and we’ll email you the Zoom link.
