Woodland Heritage Officer

This role is to oversee the planning, delivery and evaluation of our “Working Woodland Heritage” project.

We have an incredible woodland heritage in England and particularly in the North York Moors region, but in recent decades we have lost that woodland culture and our connection to nature. Through our Working Woodland Heritage project we want to revive the woodland culture of North York Moors National Park and coastal communities.

You will deliver a range of workshops, guided walks and experiences to help local people and communities to improve their connection to the woodland and its heritage, inspiring more people to become involved with the community woodland through practical conservation volunteering, delivering a programme of heritage craft workshops and using traditional woodland management techniques.

You will support a network of volunteers referred by GP’s, NHS Green Social Prescribing leads and North Yorkshire County Council Stronger Communities to provide immersive experiences for service users experiencing mild mental health conditions (e.g. anxiety, depression), social isolation and young people furthest from employment to improve their skills, confidence and wellbeing.
