Conservation Volunteering with National Trust for Scotland

Come and help National Trust for Scotland Rangers create valuable deadwood habitat on Britain’s largest National Nature Reserve.

Learn why deadwood is so important, gain some new skills, get active and meet friendly like-minded people.


LOCATION Mar Lodge Estate – park at Linn of Dee car park and walk to start point
REQUIREMENTS Meeting point at the Linn of Dee car park at 1:15pm. Work will be carried out in a woodland so warm, waterproof and old clothes should be worn along with sturdy footwear as it will be rough and potentially wet underfoot. Please bring your own gloves but eye protection will be provided.
An axe will be used to ring-bark trees to create standing deadwood habitat. Instruction will be given on the technique and how to complete it safely. Walking over rough and uneven ground will be required and the task is physically demanding. Please bring snacks and a drink for the session.
Capacity 10
Suitable for ages 16+ due to axes
TOILETS Portaloos available at the Linn of Dee car park at the beginning and end of the event.
DISABLED ACCESS Please contact organiser in advance
