Local Reserves Group Volunteers

Some reserves have a regular local group of volunteers that undertake a variety of tasks. Sessions are led by an experienced volunteer group leader. Sessions take place throughout the year. 


Local Reserves Group Volunteer Leader

Our volunteer group leaders run sessions with a group of volunteers at their local reserves on a regular basis. Liaising with the Director of Reserves and Community Engagement they produce and plan a schedule of work for the reserve to ensure that the sessions are conducted in a safe environment.

Knowledge of your local nature reserve is beneficial, although not essential. Previous habitat management experience is not required and tools, safety equipment and training will be provided.
