Get fit and healthy in the fresh air for a worthwhile cause – it’s more rewarding than the gym and it’s free!

Birchanger Wood is maintained entirely by volunteers. Most of our conservation work is done during the autumn and winter months, when we carry out coppicing. This improves the biodiversity of the the woodland and also supplies the firewood that we sell to raise funds.

During the spring and summer when the woodland is in growth, the main activity is keeping the woodland tidy and maintaining paths.

We welcome people of any age and ability and our current friendly band of volunteers range from 18 to 80. You don’t need to be super-fit!

Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme volunteers are also welcome, but we request that you speak to our warden Pat Forrest in the first instance.

For more information, fill in our Contact Form, or pop along to our compound near the Water Tower off Heath Row at around 9am on a Saturday morning.
