Greensand Country Volunteer Warden

We’re looking for some volunteer Wardens to help us look after walking routes in Leighton Buzzard, in Ampthill and between Biggleswade, Sutton and Potton.

These routes help people get outdoors so that they can come to appreciate the distinctive and loved Greensand Country.  We’re looking for keen walkers, but you don’t need any previous experience of being a Volunteer Warden.  You just need enthusiasm and passion and a love of the Greensand Country landscape.
