Crook of Lune Lancaster LA2 6PD - Crook of Lune Support Volunteer

Crook of Lune Volunteers advert


We are recruiting volunteers to support the Crook of Lune site.

Volunteers play a vital part in keeping the county's country parks, picnic sites, nature reserves and community woodlands looking their best, by carrying out tasks such as planting and pruning, as well as small maintenance tasks such as fixing fences, gates or signs.
Volunteers not only have the satisfaction of seeing how their work benefits the environment of the sites, but also the positive impact on the wider community who enjoy visiting them.
Volunteers can opt to do up to 3 hours a week, or as much or as little as they like, so there's no pressure to commit lots of your time. A lot of our countryside volunteers are people who visit their nearest site very frequently and have a sense of pride and ownership towards it, which is why they want to do their bit to keep it looking good.

Applicants should be aware that maintaining the whole site will include traversing some areas that can be overgrown, steep, muddy.
