There is no need to book and you don’t have to commit for a whole day — even if you can only spare an hour or two you will always be welcome. Afternoon sessions start around 1.30pm. with activities including general habitat maintenance and improvement, and keeping paths, etc. clear and safe for visitors, and other tasks to age and ability as needed.

The workdays are not suitable for very young children but older children might enjoy them. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
