Would you like to learn new skills and help the environment? Why not volunteer with the Wildlife Trust?
We rely on the support of volunteers to help manage our nature reserves. You can join our Conservation Projects team on our regular volunteer days where we can offer you the chance to learn new skills, have a fun day out and gain valuable experience working with wildlife and other people.
Every year we undertake exciting new conservation projects and carry out regular conservation management tasks at sites which range from large nature reserves to the gardens of our education centres. You can join us for a one-off day out, or get more involved with a specific site or project where you can build up your knowledge and experienc`e of working in nature conservation. There are also opportunities to help support our work with social and community groups.
We hold regular activity days at our reserves - please contact the appropriate member of the team for more information
