There are several opportunities to get involved in and around the Forest of Bowland and there are a number of organisations that will welcome you and, in some cases, offer training depending on your aims and plans. Which organisation you approach will depend on what you want to get out of volunteering and the level of commitment you wish to give.
You may simply want to join in one of our fantastic Festival Bowland events -this is a year round calendar of events celebrating the nature, landscape, culture and heritage of hte Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - there's something for everyone!
If you want to volunteer regularly and/or build a better CV for a paid job in the environmental sector then look at the section on Volunteering & Training or visit our Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership project website.
The Forest of Bowland AONB team sometimes has volunteering opportunities available, generally linked to specific projects. Take a look below to find out what is available at the moment or have a look at opportunities with the Friends of Bowland group.
