Rangers and Volunteering
County Ranger Service
There are a team of Countryside Rangers who oversee more than 2,500 hectares of country parks, picnic areas and greenways. They also inspect and report on the condition of the Rights of Way Network.
Rangers have a role in improving the countryside of the county by providing information, including details of grant aid available for countryside improvement. The rangers are supported by two small works unit teams, (one in the north and one in the south) who maintain the country parks and access land and improve the Rights of Way Network.

There are many opportunities for volunteering to help with our activities. Voluntary Wardens give tremendous assistance to the Ranger Service with their work. If you are interested in volunteering please visit the Community Volunteer Programme webpage.
We also work closely with the Ramblers Association who undertake a considerable amount of work on the Public Rights of Way network, ranging from the installation of stiles and kissing gates to the clearance of vegetation.
