Friends of Dalby Forest

Volunteering in the Great Yorkshire Forest

About

fodf-logoHello! We are the Friends of Dalby Forest (Registered Charity Number 1125882). We are a group of volunteers who meet regularly in Dalby Forest (North Yorkshire, UK) to enhance the facilities and settings for all visitors, on a wide range of Forestry Commission-approved projects.

Dalby Forest is situated within the beautiful North York Moors National Park, managed by the Forestry Commission (who are responsible for protecting and promoting the sustainable management of Dalby).

Work tasks

Come join us on one of our regular volunteer days, bring the kids, bring the dogs and get some fresh Dalby air! The group is open to everyone. We meet in the forest every 3rd Sunday of the month, from 9am onwards, either for the whole morning or as much time as you can spare.

New volunteers are always welcome and regular volunteers receive a free annual pass to Dalby. We do things like clearing paths, planting and generally maintaining areas of the Forest like the play areas, bird hides and forest gardens. We are growing as a volunteer organisation and we are always keen to welcome new volunteers to ensure that we better represent all the varied interests of the thousands who visit the forest every year.
