Volunteer Day - Portway Hill

Volunteers are given the opportunity to get involved in a variety of practical conservation tasks and ecological surveys to conserve the reserve for wildlife and people.

No prior experience of conservation volunteering is required as training will be given by our staff.

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, gain practical habitat management skills, spend time outdoors and discover the wildlife in your local greenspace.

All tools and equipment are provided but you will need to bring some lunch.

We advise volunteers to wear outdoor clothing appropriate for the weather and sturdy footwear including walking boots, wellington boots or ideally steel-toe capped boots.

Volunteer days at Portway Hill are held on the third Friday and the second Saturday of the month, 10:00am - 15:00pm. 

The number of volunteers per session will be limited to five volunteers with one group leader.

You will only be permitted to join in a volunteer session if you are a registered volunteer and have confirmation of your booking. This forms part of our Track and Trace procedure and also allows the group leader to bring enough tools and equipment for the group.

If you would like to attend a volunteer day at Portway Hill please contact Natalie Norton, Natalie.n@bbcwildlife.org.uk in advance of the volunteer day to book your place on a volunteer day. The Trust will have a system in place to aim to ensure that all volunteers have an opportunity to get involved.
