Outdoor Volunteering

Outdoor Volunteering

We're always looking for volunteers to join our outdoor tasks throughout the county. You'll be working alongside our Reserve Wardens and a team of friendly volunteers helping us to manage our Reserves for wildlife. This is a great way in which to spend time outside, meet new people and make a real difference to wildlife. Our work is seasonal, with mainly monitoring and survey work taking place throughout the summer months, and our Reserve management work taking place between September and March.

 It's essential that you check the task list prior to attending and let the relevant Warden know you'll be joining us. You'll need to wear weather appropriate clothing, sturdy footwear and bring your lunch with you.  Those aged 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.  

How to use our Task Lists

A Natural Health Service

Volunteering is good for improving your physical and mental health and wellbeing by:

  • A better and healthier social life
  • Improvement to health through increased physical outdoor activity
  • Increased awareness of the importance of nature
  • Sense of purpose and achievement
  • Reduction in stress and anxiety

A 12 week volunteering project led by The Wildlife Trust showed that 95% of participants with low wellbeing reported an improvement in six weeks which increased over the following six weeks.
