Mid Suffolk District Council's Countryside Teams are responsible for managing a number of sites owned by the Council and work with landowners and other agencies to actively protect, conserve and enhance Mid Suffolk's wider countryside.
They aim to keep the sites they manage safe and looking clean and attractive to visitors as well as protecting their wildlife and landscape importance.
They are here to help visitors learn about, understand and appreciate their local environment and the surrounding countryside, provide opportunities to enjoy the local countryside and get involved in its management through volunteering.
The Countryside Teams organise a series of guided walks and children's activities throughout the year as well as volunteer days, educational programmes for schools and activities for groups such as Cubs and Brownies.
