About Ranger for a weekendDiscover what it’s like to be a ranger at Cliveden.
Join the ranger team for the weekend to help with seasonal conservation and maintenance projects. With almost half a million visitors every year, there’s always plenty to do, and the team are very busy, looking after 300 acres of woodland, miles of paths and the vibrant, wildlife-filled banks of the River Thames.
On the Sunday afternoon there’s a guided walk, where you’ll be given an insight into the management of the whole estate and what it’s like to work there. For the weekend as a whole, you’ll need sturdy footwear, comfortable weather-proof clothing and a readiness to get physically active in the ‘green gym’!
