Activities are season dependent, with tree planting from autumn to early spring, with the rest of the year including; seed collecting, nursery tasks, weedwork, track clearing, and other relevant jobs. Along with Trust Leaders we can tailor a day to fit with a wide variety of ages (5-80), fitness levels and experience. The aim is to enjoy the beautiful island and contribute to its future.
