Would you like to get involved in nature recovery projects within the Surrey Hills?  If so then you may be interested in our Surrey Hills Conservation Volunteers Programme. Surrey Hills Conservation Volunteers undertake conservation and access work across the Surrey Hills National Landscape, managing access and habitats for people and nature.

We have a wide variety of roles available to suit your availability.

For those that have less time, we run several ‘one-off’ community conservation events throughout the year. These events are open to all and require no ongoing commitment. Simply turn up for a few hours and contribute towards conservation in your local area. To be kept informed about upcoming community events through our conservation mailing list please email

If you are looking for a role with a bit more commitment, then you may be interested in the following:

  • Conservation Project Assistants
  • Footpath Auditors
  • Wildlife Survey Volunteers

To find out more about how to get involved please contact our Project and Volunteer Coordinator, Christa Emmett by emailing Please note some of these roles may require appropriate training depending on the project/activity.

Corporate Volunteering Days

The Society also organises bespoke volunteering days for corporates and local businesses. These task days all contribute towards nature recovery and enjoyment of the Surrey Hills. A day out in the countryside away from online meetings, can have huge benefits for mental health, as well as strengthening relationships between team members.  We offer a huge range of activities throughout the year.

Take a look at our corporate volunteering information pack including examples of previous days by clicking here.

Community Group and School Volunteering Days

We also offer opportunities for groups that may not have experienced volunteering in the countryside before and for those that would like to gain skills in practical conservation.

Examples of groups that we have worked with include Halow, Leatherhead Youth Project, Merrist Wood College and many more.
