We have volunteers who enjoy sharing their knowledge of the environment with children and young people and help out when needed with our school tours and 'Wild Days Out.' If working outdoors is not for you, perhaps you could assist in the office - making posters and flyers to publicise events for example.
We are also able to set up programmes of work for specific groups on a regular or occasional basis. To date these have included Millennium Volunteers, Learning Gateway, Recovering Mental Health Support Groups, university and college conservation teams, summer camps and school activity or environmental days. Tea, coffee, tools and all necessary training are provided. No previous experience is necessary.
If tree planting and hay-raking is not for you, we're also looking for people who have a bit of time to spare to help us with activities taking place both at the centre and around the county.
Whether you want to develop new skills or make use of existing ones there's bound to be an opportunity for you to get involved. We'd be particularly interested to hear from anyone with an interest in wildlife that they're willing to share with school groups and families, but we also need help with office tasks such as resource preparation, design work and marketing. Specialist wildlife expertise is always welcome.
