As a charity, we depend on the generosity of volunteers - you don't need a forestry background to support the work we do. Anyone with an interest in woodlands can apply to volunteer for a number of projects around the country. Whilst developing your own skills and interests with us you will also be contributing to the cause of improving woodlands and providing a real benefit to the conservation of wildlife and sustainable management of forests.
Volunteering opportunities include:
- Help maintain RFS woods to a high standard. There are regular volunteering work parties organised at Hockeridger and Pancake Wood in partnerhsip with the Chiltern Society. See here for the current schedule of work parties.
- Join a Divisional Committee to help organise activities to support the RFS
- Invite the RFS to visit your woods.
- Visit a school or college in your area to speak to students about woodland management.
- Contribute an article to the Quarterly Journal of Forestry.
- Support the RFS presence at countryside shows.
- Recruit new RFS members in your area.
- Support RFS fundraising activities.
If any of these areas are of interest please contact the RFS at RFSHQ@rfs.org,uk
