Each year volunteers donate their time and skills to help conserve and enhance the AONB’s special landscape. It’s a great way to make friends, learn new skills, get fit and make a real difference.
There are lots of ways you can volunteer on Cannock Chase, either through the AONB team or with our partners. There are roles to suit a range of interests including: helping at events, surveys, practical conservation tasks, welcoming visitors, photography and litter picking.
