North West - Volunteering

Whether it's helping to fix a mountain bike trail or unleashing your inner forester, there are lots of ways that you can help the Forestry Commission to care for your local woodlands.

The more we know about what makes you tick means that we can tailor your volunteer experience in a way that suits you best.

Shadow Ranger Placement

Placements run for 6 months where the volunteer shadows a member of staff 1-3 days a week. These days are flexible and depend on shadow and mentor availability and requirements.  They will gain experience of working within the Forestry Commission and assist their mentor to complete various tasks.
