Two Trees Conservation Team


The Two Trees Conservation Team (TTCT) provides an excellent way to meet new people whilst helping conserve the New Forest. Conservation tasks involve lots of fresh air and exercise plus the opportunity to socialise with others who have a similar love of the area. Work may involve getting rid of scrub in ponds to help toads and newts or clearing small trees from ride edges for butterflies and insects. TTCT conservation tasks take place during the winter months across weekdays and weekends. For more information and details on how to join please click here (opens an external independent website provided by the Volunteer Rangers)
