Muck in at Longshaw

Volunteers collecting tree seeds

Muck-In Days are a great way to get involved at Longshaw and the Eastern Moors. Rangers, staff, volunteers and families join up to tackle important conservation tasks, while connecting and sharing knowledge.

Muck-In Days are 10am-12.30pm every second Sunday of the month. They're free and there's no need to book - just bring yourself and some suitable clothing and footwear.

From repairing walls to seed collection and planting,  give young people, families and individuals the chance to – well, muck in! The Junior Rangers programme at Longshaw and the Eastern Moors also allows teenagers to collect stamps on their passport, working toward a full passport and the title of Junior Ranger (and a very stylish t-shirt to boot).

This year, we'll be repairing stone walls, pulling Himalayan balsam, bracken bashing, dry stone walling and lots more.  

Muck in days are a way for rangers, visitors, staff and volunteers at Longshaw to connect.  Most importantly, it means essential conservation tasks get done while having fun (plus, it’s fun to say in a broad Derbyshire accent). So go on – Muck In!
