Skelton Grange Environment Centre

The Conservation Volunteers charity welcomes people of all ages to learn, volunteer and play in the natural environment at our award winning eco-centre and nature area in Leeds.

We offer great educational visits for schools and groups, seasonal activity days for childminders, support people to volunteer in conservation and education, and run lots of training and fun events for kids, adults, teachers, childminders and families … join in, feel good!

We would love to see you at Skelton Grange - join our Friday volunteer team to look after the wildlife area, the kids can spend their holidays learning bushcraft skills, and adults can enjoy learning something new in our great course programme too...
