Conservation Work Parties - Northamptonshire
*Please note: all work parties are currently on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic.*
Work parties take place on many of our nature reserves, as well as other sites across Northamptonshire. They are a great way to get hands-on to help wildlife in your local area, and help us to achieve a #WilderFuture where nature and people can thrive.
Generally no skills are needed as training and tools are provided. You will need to wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear and bring something to eat and drink. Please contact the task leader of the work party you are interested in before attending, as they can provide you with directions and other details.
The first work parties listed for each county are run regularly by Trust staff and usually have capacity for new volunteers. The smaller, reserve-based work parties are more informal and infrequent.
Check out the list below for what is happening near you and for who to contact.
