Conservation volunteering with Trees for Life offers a rewarding and hugely enjoyable opportunity to restore native forests and wildlife habitats. Our volunteers have planted over one million trees and we're now working to expand the forests with a million more.
There are three ways in which you can volunteer at our Dundreggan Conservation Estate:
Our Conservation Weeks at Dundreggan provide an opportunity for volunteers from all around the world, of all ages and backgrounds, to help restore native woodland to the Conservation Estate. From planting trees to removing non-native species, putting up fences, collecting seeds and berries, and growing trees in our nursery, there is something for everyone! Accommodation is in the recently refurbished comfortable Dundreggan Lodge.
Long-Term Volunteer placements
The Trees for Life Long-Term Volunteer Programme provides opportunities for enthusiastic individuals to gain experience in practical conservation work based at our Dundreggan Conservation Estate. If you are hoping to start a career in conservation or simply want to expand your skill set, our long-term volunteer programme is the ideal way to gain an in-depth knowledge of the techniques of forest restoration. Placements are from one to three months and include accommodation and a weekly food allowance.
Our Conservation Days are for people who live locally in the Inverness-shire, mid-Highland or West Moray area. They run fortnightly on a Wednesday in a variety of locations across the Highlands. Volunteers take part in a range of exciting activities including tree planting, surveying natural regeneration, rhododendron bashing, collecting seeds and berries, working in our tree nursery and much more!
