It is our aim to maintain existing and forge new links with local schools, colleges, handicapped groups, young and not so young in an endeavour to actively encourage an appreciation of nature conservation and also help in the day to day management of the Reserve for the future.

Our aim is to provide an attractive and safe place for people to visit, whilst not compromising the wildlife and geological interest.

Volunteer work parties can be seen helping with management work, trying their hand at woodland crafts using traditional materials and methods. Why not join "The Friends of Ravenshill", experience is not necessary, just an interest in the environment and a desire to contribute to nature conservation. contact us for more details.
