Woodland Oasis Project Officer

The focus of the Woodland Oasis project is to create safe, accessible, sustainable woodland spaces for community groups, young peoples’ groups, schools and volunteer groups. These community spaces are available for a variety of activities such as Bushcraft, greenwood working, forest school and survival skills.

LWT have already established two Woodland Oasis sites; Booths plantation in Penwortham and Wycoller Country Park, Colne, with a third site to be established in Trowbarrow, Silverdale.

The Trust is now looking for a Project Officer to join the team, who will work with the Senior Education Officer to deliver focussed outcomes of the project, and volunteer sessions across the three sites. The successful applicant will have at least two years of experience working with young people in the conservation sector, and the ability to plan and deliver practical conservation projects.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a project which aims to leave a lasting legacy, by educating and inspiring young people to continue maintaining these woodland spaces, and maybe even creating more like them.
