Become a volunteer:
Joining our Rangers out on the reserve, is a great way to get involved with
the Trust, whilst gaining some fresh air and exercise. You'll also meet new
people and spend time in the great outdoors, helping to make our
woodlands, heathland and rivers an enjoyable place for us to visit and a
thriving habitat for the creatures who live there.
There is not minimum, or maximum, amount of time you have to commit to. We'd love you to join us if it's just a one off spare hour, or a more regular arrangement.
As we are a small team, we are hugely grateful to our army of

We now also have weekend work parties in Bordon Inclosure and
Hogmoor Inclosure, running on the first Saturday of the month and the
third Saturday of the month respectively. The meeting point for these
work parties are the car parks of each Inclosure, starting at 10am and
running to 12pm. Tea/coffee and biscuits are provided!
Examples of work we do include small tree work, scrub bashing,
fencing, footpath maintenance, river clearance and litter picking.
We work in all weathers, provide safety gloves, refreshments, friendly company and a chance to get involved with your local nature reserve! You should wear study boots and clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
