Our response to the coronavirus outbreak is continuing – and our focus is on keeping critical services running, particularly those supporting vulnerable people.

We are currently working through the detail of the latest government announcements which affect Leicester city and parts of the county. 

Find out more about the support and guidance available, and any changes to our services.

Conservation volunteering

What are the benefits of volunteering?

Our country park volunteers get fresh air and exercise, at the same time as helping to improve the local environment and making new friends. 

You'll learn new skills and gain knowledge about Leicestershire's plants and wildlife.

What do I need to become a volunteer?

All you need is some clothing you don't mind getting dirty, gloves and appropriate footwear - and to be ready for the weather. You will receive training, tools and any specialist equipment. 

Take the next step and get in touch to find out when our next conservation day is being held.
