Autumn Conservation Weekend


Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd October 2021

Join us for an autumnal weekend of woodland conversation and human restoration.

About this event

This weekend combines the satisfaction of outdoor physical activity with the restorative effect of relaxing in a woodland environment. Over two days and two nights at Hazel Hill you will get the chance to try your hand at a range of conservation activities that are helping to turn this piece of important woodland into a resilient environment for the future.

Led by our experienced conservation team, you’ll get involved with activities such as tree-planting, restoring butterfly habitat and thinning thickets. And when it’s time to down tools there are plenty of ways to relax: wander through the wood; do some stretching in the woods; sing songs around the campfire; and share delicious food.

The event takes place at Hazel Hill Wood, a secluded 70-acre conservation woodland and retreat centre that offers basic indoor accommodation in off-grid eco-buildings with warm showers. You can also camp. Timing from 6pm on Friday 1st October until 3pm on Sunday 3rd October. Prices include all meals.

Most of the accommodation is twin rooms; please expect to share if you come alone. There are a few group/family rooms. Let us know if you’re part of a wider group and we’ll try and put you together.

Children age 4 and up welcome with an adult family member.

Sorry, no pets.
