Join us for our 5th annual Volunteer Conference and this year we will be at Crickley Hill on Saturday, July 21st. Crickley is home to a SSSI grassland boasting a beautiful population of wildflowers. With 5,000 years of rich human history and spectacular views of the Severn Vale, it's a date not to miss!

Volunteers who attend this year will also get to hear about our pine marten reintroduction feasibility study from Andrew Stringer, our Pine Marten Project Manager. If approved we will be reintroducing the species into the Forest of Dean.

There will also be news from Greystones about the exciting opening of our new visitor centre, cafe and the hard work of our Greystones volunteers. With further speakers being announced shortly there will be plenty to enjoy.

We will again host a buffet lunch with the famous Simon Weaver brie, followed by a guided tour of Crickley Hill in the afternoon. There'll be the chance to see the rare chalk hill blue butterfly, adders, carline thistle and bee orchids and with plenty of archaeology including an Iron Age Hill Fort. 

The morning presentations will be held in nearby Birdlip at the village hall. We will be serving hot drinks from 10:15am so why not join us for refreshments before our first speaker at 10:30am.

You can book your free space at the conference below.

We look forward to seeing you there.
