Muck in at Longshaw

Volunteers helping with woodland management tasks at a Muck in Day

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. Our meeting points for the sessions may be varied so please always check on our What's On  page for more information.

From repairing walls to seed collection and planting,  these sessions give young people, families and individuals the chance to muck in and help our teams to look after Longshaw and the Eastern Moors. 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.

This year, you'll be helping with woodland work, repairing paths, bracken bashing, 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. So go on – Muck In!
