Friends of Polkemmet Country Park

Have you ever wanted to be more involved at Polkemmet Country Park? We have a list of tasks planned for our 'Friends' group, who are passionate about their environment and local green spaces and want to get involved in conservation volunteering and improving your Park.

The Friends of Polkemmet
Friends Polkemmet

The Friends group help the Ranger Service to manage Polkemmet Country Park, by carrying out practical outdoor tasks such as cutting back vegetation, tree management, path work and litter picking. The group usually meet with the Ranger Service at the Park on one Sunday per month.

Current opportunities

We have a list of 'hands-on' practical activities planned for 2022, which will help to make your Park an even better place to visit. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm for nature and the outdoors and an interest in helping the Ranger Service and the Friends group.

Come along and join us in planning for future work at Polkemmet for the benefit of everyone. The Friends are a formally constituted group but are always looking for more interested people who could help them on their committee.
