What to expect

RSPB Highnam Woods nature reserve is a patch of ancient woodland situated in the heart of Gloucestershire. The reserve is home to a variety of woodland creatures including the very melodic nightingale, which can be heard across the reserve throughout the spring and early summer. Wildflowers are impressive on this ancient woodland site and, depending on timing it is possible to see cuckoo flowers, wood anenomes, bluebells and ragged robins. Facilities: car parking.

Your group

Team Challenges are muddy and energetic, but that's all part of the fun! We will supply all tools and the necessary protective equipment such as gloves. No skills are required, just make sure to bring old clothes, waterproofs, plenty of drinking water and packed lunches. Group size: 7+

Support us

Minimum:
1 day
Duration:
10am - 4pm (flexible)
Period:
September - March

The skills and time provided by corporate teams are incredibly valuable to the RSPB. Corporate work parties help us tackle jobs that would otherwise take our wardens days or even weeks to complete. Employee volunteering also helps us to build community links and valuable business support, and many of our business volunteers return to our reserves with family and friends after their volunteer experience. Some even join as members and become life-long supporters.

How you will help us

Help us with our nature conservation work; we have a variety of projects running throughout the year including: planting wildflowers, woodland coppicing. All of which benefit our reserve's wildlife. Start the day with a talk introducing you to the reserve and the RSPB, before heading out on your conservation task. Enjoy the afternoon spotting the site's fascinating wildlife with one of our knowledgeable wardens.
