Northwich Woodlands

The Rangers

A number of Countryside Rangers working for partner organisations manage land within the Northwich Woodlands.

A ranger's role is to manage the land for recreation and wildlife - an interesting duty, sometimes involving traditional crafts such as hedgelaying. The ranger's work is supported by groups of volunteers. They work alongside the rangers, joining in on a wide range of tasks such as reedbed management, regular wildlife surveys, coppicing, charcoal and woodland furniture making.

If you have any questions about your visit to the Northwich Woodlands or would like to get involved as a volunteer, give the Rangers a call - you will find all our details below.
