The park ranger service looks after the council's open spaces along with helping visitors, maintaining woodlands and nature reserves, conserving wildlife and supporting events.
Volunteer work days are run by the ranger service, providing opportunities for people to learn rural skills such as hedgelaying and woodland crafts. If you'd like to attend one of the volunteer work days, you can contact the area park ranger teams for details:
