The Don Gorge is an area of outstanding natural beauty to the west of Doncaster in South Yorkshire. As the name implies, the river is bordered on either side by steep limestone cliffs which were carved out over thousands of years by the receding ice flows of the last ice age.

Don Gorge Conservation Volunteers are part of Don Gorge Community Group, and support the work of the Community Group through practical conservation activities along the Gorge. Their activities are carried out in partnership with Canal & River Trust and the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. New members are always welcome so please come along and get stuck in!


This is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and discover more about the history of Don Gorge and the waterways that run through it.

Skills required

No previous experience necessary, however volunteers are advised to wear outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear.

This volunteering opportunity is run in partnership with Don Gorge Community Group. Visit their website to find out more and make contact at:
