Volunteer with conservation groups

Find out what CityParks Ranger volunteers do, how you can get involved and where to find other conservation volunteering groups in Brighton & Hove.

Become a CityParks volunteer

CityParks Ranger volunteers carry out practical conservation projects in parks and nature reserves across Brighton & Hove.

Typical tasks include:

  • tree planting
  • coppicing
  • hedge laying
  • scrub bashing
  • gardening
  • path installation
  • fencing
  • wildflower planting

You don't need any experience. We bring all the tools (and the tea and coffee).

CityParks Ranger volunteers meet every Wednesday and Friday at 10am.

How to get involved

Join the mailing list by sending an email to cityparks.volunteers@brighton-hove.gov.uk. We'll send you an email once a week with details of the task. We'll also send a map showing how to get to the meeting point.

If you want to join in, just reply to the email and arrive at the meeting point at 10am.

Other volunteering groups

There is also a wide range of other conservation groups that are active across the city. If you're interested in working in your local park or as part of a specific action group, you can visit the Brighton & Hove Green Space Forum to find a volunteering opportunity that works for you.
