Gain new skills and help visitors enjoy the countryside

Gain new skills and help visitors enjoy the countryside

Our local conservation volunteer group meet at Downs Banks, Hawskmoor and Great Haywood Cliffs each month. The group gets involved in all sorts of essential work on the Downs and other local countryside properties.

Tasks we undertake include: repairing footpaths, building new steps on slopes, mounting gates and repairing fences.

Our time is also spent carrying out vital work for the protection and creation of valuable habitats.

This work is great fun and good exercise too. It's not just work either; we have a great time, a good laugh and volunteering is a marvellous way to make new friends.

We meet at 10am at the main car park. For further details please call 01889 882825; or email us.

Work place groups

Getting involved

If your place of work is interested in having a fun day out of doors and acheiving something of real benefit for wildlife and the community, get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.

Path repair

Most of our paths have natural surfaces which we work hard to keep in good order for our visitors. Restoring eroded areas, adding steps and fixing path edges are essential tasks we could not do without volunteers.

Habitat work

Maintaining Downs Banks as a valuable haven for wildlife often calls for the personal touch. Volunteers are able to manage habitats sensitively while making huge impacts for the ecosystems here.

Caring for countryside

Gates, fences, signs and waymarks, features of Downs Banks you can take for granted, thanks to the enthusiastic and skilful work of our volunteers.
