With nearly 500 acres of land to maintain, we are always looking for conservation and estate volunteers.

Our conservation volunteers meet every Tuesday carrying out a variety of tasks, keeping our lands in good order and maintaining the important wildlife habitats. Estate volunteers are involved with the farming tasks and work alongside one of our friendly Estate team.

Wildlife surveying

If you have a passion for flora or fauna and would like to carry out some wildlife surveys for us, we always welcome volunteers to our team.

Guided walks and talks

If you would be interested in leading or assisting in leading guided walks and talks across the estate, we would love to hear from you.


Our events would not run as smoothly as they do without the help of volunteers, we have a variety of events that you could get involved in.


Our Education team have a band of volunteers assisting with education sessions for local schools. These include Forest School sessions, outdoor parent and toddler groups, (Nature Tots), and our Youth Rangers groups.

Adult Community Groups

Our outreach volunteers assist with adult community group visits. We also run regular family activity days where our volunteers assist in delivering activities indoors and outdoors.


We also welcome corporate volunteer groups to carry out full or half day tasks across our Estate, led by a Ranger.

“Volunteering with The Box Moor Trust should come with a health warning—you gain so many new experiences, skills and friends in beautiful surroundings!”  Anthea Lovatt, Conservation and education volunteer.
