Recent guidance from the government states that volunteering is regarded a reasonable reason to leave the house during lockdown, only where the volunteering is classed as essential work and cannot be carried out from home.
In line with this and to keep our volunteers safe, we have scaled back our volunteering and will not be recruiting any new group volunteers during lockdown
we still need your help and there are lots of practical things you can do to help nature at home. Have a look on our get involved page for some ideas.
Thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.
About conservation volunteering
There's nothing better than working in the great outdoors with a group of like-minded people.
Our opportunities can be in rather remote locations, so access to your own transport is usually vital. The days will start at 10am and go on until early afternoon, with regular rests to keep you topped up with refreshments and sweet treats.
The days are led by staff or experienced volunteers, you really don't need to be an expert to get involved, all training for the task will be provided. Most work is carried out with hand tools, and we will provide all equipment necessary for the day, including PPE. Just bring along weather appropriate clothing, sturdy boots, plenty of water and a packed lunch.
Please note, unless it is specified on the volunteer opportunity, we are unable to accept volunteers under the age of 18.
We're currently updating details about our projects. Please keep checking back for updates.
