World Ranger Weekend at Tyntesfield 2018

National Trust ranger at a family muck-in day

In support of World Ranger Day, the National Trust rangers from sites across Bristol invite you to join us for a weekend of talks and activities to celebrate their work.

What is World Ranger Day?

World Ranger Day is organised every year by the International Ranger Federation.

It celebrates the work rangers across the globe do to protect the world's natural and cultural treasures.

We're marking it at Tyntesfield with a series of walks, talks and activities led by the National Trust's Bristol ranger team.
