Countryside conservation

Getting involved

There are all sorts of ways that you can make a difference and help nature flourish in Bracknell Forest. Conservation volunteering is just one practical way for you to protect the environment you care about.

Practical conservation activities you can get involved with run by our Parks and Countryside Rangers or by getting in touch with local volunteer groups include:

  • pond clearance, coppicing, hedge laying, scrub clearance and tree planting
  • creating new wildlife features such as hedgerows and stag beetle loggeries
  • improving access to the countryside by building and managing footpaths and footbridges
  • helping local volunteer groups with office administration, running publicity stalls, raising funds and organising events
  • surveying and monitoring wildlife and habitats

You benefit too

Practical conservation is an excellent way of getting fit and feeling good physically. You will also meet new people and develop useful skills. In today’s job market, volunteering is becoming an increasingly valuable stepping stone to a future career.
