Training session for woodland volunteer workers
The first training session for volunteers who will work with children on future Forest School sessions.
We’ll be exploring the new open areas, created by the winter management felling, with a view to layout of the new base-camp.
If you’re new to Oxlip Wood but fancy coming along to find out more about what we do, then drop me an email or pick up the phone for a chat.
Training session for woodland volunteers
The second session of this season, we will be focussing on practical safety considerations when working with children and adults in woodland.
Coming along to a training session for woodland volunteers could be the first step in you getting involved in some very worthwhile outdoor activities. We will be working with a range of client groups during 2015, involving children as young as 3 and adults who could well have a 7 or an 8 in front of the 3!
Woodland volunteer training
An opportunity for learning about the various aspects involved in being a volunteer helper working with both children and adults.
You’ll have an opportunity to learn about practical skills and fire safety and we’ll even provide you with an opportunity to cook over an open fire.
Woodland volunteer training session
Come along if you fancy doing some volunteering in woodland, working with children from 3 years old one session and maybe people with a 7 or 8 in front of the 3 at another.
The sessions we run at the wood might involve taking a group to show them particular plants of interest, or to guide them on a bluebell walk. We also run Forest School sessions which run over 6 weekly sessions of 2 hours.
Obviously, we need to provide training to our volunteers and this is a perfect opportunity to learn about the many aspects and benefits to be gained from becoming a woodland worker volunteer.
Dawn chorus walk in Oxlip Wood
Meeting at 6.30 a.m. won’t mean you’re up before the birds, but it’s probably early enough for most humans on a Sunday?
I will try to help you to identify some of the many interesting species of birds who choose to make a home in Oxlip Wood .The difference between managed and unmanaged areas in terms of number of species present should be apparent. This timing is about ideal;most summer migrants over here and the height of the breeding season.
Conditions? Well, a warm,dry,calm and sunny morning would be spot on but there will much to hear and see if the weather does not oblige.
An idea of numbers is important, so please respond with your details if you’d like to attend.
Looking forward to seeing you then Gerald
