Wychwood Winter work parties

  • Wychwood Project Wychwood National Nature Reserve Wychwood, Oxfordshire UK (map)

Volunteering with the Wychwood Project is a great way to pick up skills, make friends and feel part of an enthusiastic team, indoors, outdoors, at events....there is something for everyone.
Wychwood Project work -parties / activities run from 9.30 - 3pm unless otherwise stated; there is normally no need to book (the listing will say if booking is required); just turn up at 9.30 - you don't need to stay for the whole session if you don't have time (or energy!). No experience is necessary for any of the tasks (full training and instruction is part of the day) but you should wear appropriate clothing for outdoor work - including stout boots and gloves.  So, come and get some exercise and fresh air, meet some friendly fellow volunteers - and help the Wychwood Project!
