Create lasting memories at Hardcastle Crags

Family volunteers helping to cut back hedgerows

How would you like to spend quality family time together helping us look after the woodland and countryside here at Hardcastle Crags?

So what kind of thing would you be doing? Getting stuck in to help our rangers with really practical tasks to give nature a helping hand.

You and your family are guaranteed to have lots of fun whilst learning about woodland management and tree identification.

These sessions in the school holidays run from 11am -  2pm with a break for lunch, so if you would like to join us meet the ranger at the information point at the end of Midgehole Road, (just after the first car park).

Here's a taste of what’s in store for you on last session of the year:

  • Wednesday 1 November – woodland management and natural flood management (NFM) stuffing gullies with brash.

Don't forget your packed lunch and insect repellent! Remember to wear suitable clothing and footwear. Gloves will be provided but feel free to bring your own.

Please note that young people under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult.

All families welcome!

We are hoping to create a group of family volunteers, if you think this could be for you, follow this link and search; Hardcastle Crags
