Volunteering at Munstead Wood

All National Trust properties rely on the dedication and time of their volunteers. As Munstead Wood gets closer to opening, we will be no different. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please check back on this page for future updates about available opportunities.

While we are still in the initial stages of work to conserve and restore Munstead Wood, we are not looking for immediate help from volunteers.

Access at the property is a little difficult and some of the initial works further restrict the number of people who can safely be on site. We want to introduce volunteers when it is safe and we have enjoyable and worthwhile roles for people to take on.

Please do keep checking back to this page for information about opportunities as they become available.

Alternatively, if you would like to register your interest in volunteering with us, please use the contact details below.
