Green Volunteers

This monthly group assists the Rangers Service with practical conservation work in the grounds of Hopetoun House. We will be improving woodland biodiversity, burning invasive plants, maintaining the nature trails and increasing the wildlife value of the Grounds. Volunteers will gain new skills, meet new friends and take a free form of exercise. As a way of saying thank you if you attend 4 sessions we will reward you with a free House and Grounds season ticket.

You can view the dates of the Green Volunteer sessions here.

These projects are free and all refreshments, tools and necessary safety equipment will be provided. However, please bring old clothes and sturdy boots.

The session runs from 10am - 1pm and booking is required.

Please book your places by telephoning 0131 319 3956 or email ranger@hopetoun.co.uk.
