If you really want to get away for a couple of days and do something different, these short conservation breaks may be just the thing.  Animals are dependent on wetlands & woodland, hedges and trees for places to rest & nest, shelter and feed, so the conservation of these places makes a difference.  They will get you away to beautiful surroundings, give you exercise, fresh air, a chance to make new friends and that feel good factor that comes with volunteering and making a difference. You do need to be physically fit & willing to muck in and get stuck in in all aspects of these breaks.
The UK has some stunning scenery & countryside in which you can volunteer - and here are just a few ideas of volunteer breaks for you, all listed on ethical travel directory Responsible Travel.  If you have a whim to travel further afield, they also have lots of volunteer holidays listed all over the world.
