Come along and join the Calderglen Conservation Volunteers for a practical Woodland Workout!

Are you passionate about working in nature? Could you help the Calderglen Conservation Volunteers help protect our ancient woodlands, wildlife, and heritage? By joining the volunteer conservation sessions, you will be helping protect our special places for the benefit of people and wildlife.

Anyone can be a Calderglen Conservation Volunteer; all you need is a bit of spare time on the second Sunday of the month and a love of the outdoors. You will get to meet like-minded volunteers, hopefully, have a laugh, and a chance to get fit for 2023 without going to the gym!

We will provide full training and tools to undertake the conservation tasks working with SLC Countryside Ranger Service and experienced volunteers.
