There are a number of ways that you can get involved:

Volunteer For Conservation Days

Conservation Volunteers


Give a little back! If you have a little spare time on Fridays and Saturdays, then why not become a volunteer for the Malvern Hills. Duties may include clearing a pond, removing bracken shading wild flowers, or clearing trees and having a bonfire - a popular winter activity! Get to know like minded people, gain skills and training, be out in the countryside and do something worthwhile for the Malvern Hills and Commons.

For any further details contact the Malvern Hills Wardens on 01684 892002 or pop into our office for a chat.

Become a Voluntary Warden

Wardens at work

(Thank you for your interest but unfortunately there are no vacancies at present)

The three full time wardens can't be everywhere on the 3000 acres of land open to the public so why not see if you are the sort of person who can measure up to being a voluntary warden. The current volunteers act as officers of the Board. That means they are empowered to enforce the byelaws. However day to day is less dramatic more of a routine help of talking to visitors, checking footpaths and collecting litter. If you like being out in the fresh air and doing something really useful why not be in touch.


Become A Voluntary Wildlife Site Warden

Conservators at Ashdown Forest

(Thank you for your interest but unfortunately there are no vacancies at present)

Becoming a wildlife site warden is an excellent way of learning more about the conservation of wildlife. There are pockets of rare habitats on the Hills and working with the Conservation Officer, site wardens help produce a plan for protecting the unique features. The site warden is given guidance and tools to look after the site. One site warden has been looking after the only site on the Hills for the Dingy Skipper. This butterfly and its food plant are increasing thank to the efforts of the volunteer.


Volunteer As A Member Of The Board

If you are interested in the work carried out by the Conservators and would like to be involved, then why not stand for election to become a member of the Board. Like local district elections, they are held every 4 years, the next being in October 2015. Eleven wards around Malvern choose Conservators; you do not have to live in the ward but you do have to be a levy payer.
