Meet the team
We are currently updating this page, come back soon to meet our new Countryside Rangers.
Liz - Senior Countryside Ranger
Edith - Countryside Ranger - Bramshot Farm Country Park
I'm primarily based at Bramshot Farm. I'm looking forward to seeing how the park develops over time for both visitors and wildlife. I enjoy learning new skills and working outdoors, even in the rain! I have previously worked within conservation charities, so this is a new experience, but one I'm enjoying so far.
Tez - Countryside Ranger - Woodlands
I spent a wild youth roaming in my local Pamber Forest and Common, and have been employing traditional skills like coppicing, hedge laying and scything as an excuse to (responsibly) wield sharp objects ever since. Despite their best attempts, the trees I love are yet to kill me. My passion lies in the restoration of fractured ecosystems by the sensible reintroduction of natural processes wherever possible, or else the safety-led imitation of absent processes through ever-developing modern techniques. At home, I keep carnivorous plants, which sometimes look at me rather hungrily...
Sam - Countryside Ranger - Fleet Pond and Elvetham Heath
I graduated from the University of Plymouth in 2014 with a degree in Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology. Despite having a lot of fun whilst studying for my degree, I decided I would rather be working in the Great British countryside. I began volunteering with the National Trust which eventually led me to the Wildlife Trust where I became a Wildlife Trainee based in West Berkshire. During my traineeship, I’ve been fortunate enough to develop my skills, experience and knowledge whilst completing a range of tasks across a wide variety of habitats. I’m looking forward to continue learning as much as I possibly can during my time at Hart District Council.
