Countryside rangers

Our countryside rangers carry out maintenance on 35 countryside sites, and 450 miles of public rights of way.

The rangers are experienced in a wide range of skills, such as dry stone walling, footbridge building, access management, habitat conservation and general maintenance.

Volunteer countryside rangers

Our volunteer countryside rangers are the 'eyes and ears' of the local public, letting us know about the good (and bad) things happening on our sites when we can't be there.

Our sites vary from fishing ponds through to nature reserves, canals and disused railway lines. Rangering can involve litter-picking, scrub-bashing, and talking to the public to help them enjoy and understand a site.

If you want to get involved
