We are trialling a Volunteer Ranger Service at Mill Waters from August to October 2023. Volunteer Ranger sessions will run on alternate Wednesday and Saturday mornings. The trial will help us to understand more about the resources needed to run a Volunteer Ranger Service and the benefits for nature and people. The results of the trail will help to inform future plans for Mill waters.
