Why volunteer at Arrowsmith Coppice?

The beautiful Arrowsmith Coppice forms part of a magnificent landscape with Dunyeats Nature Reserve and Delph Woods.  It is home to some of the rarest wildlife in the country and is famed for some of its historical finds.

Arrowsmith Coppice is steeped in history and needs our intervention to help take care of the site and preserve it for future generations.  The work you will carry out as a volunteer is crucial to constrain Rhododendron to prevent it from dominating the site, and you can also help to create new pathways to improve accessibility.
