Volunteer helping children explore wildlife in Epping Forest
Volunteers make an exceptional contribution to the care and management of Epping Forest. They help to shape the Forest’s future and have always played a major role in its past. The Epping Forest and Commons Committee, our governing body, are all volunteers.
As part of the Branching Out project we are recruiting more volunteers across the whole Forest. If you are 16 to 80 years old and want to get involved, we want to hear from you.
All our volunteers receive training and support. For more information about volunteering on Epping Forest why not take a look at the Volunteer Policy (70kb)
We celebrated the achievements of our volunteers at the Volunteer Awards Party in January 2013. To find out more, please go to the press release.
