Volunteering

Volunteers are an essential part of helping to secure the future of many habitats and species and making wildlife and green spaces more accessible. If you want ‘to put something back’ or ‘make a difference’ then volunteering in Greensand Country would be perfect for you.

Volunteers bring lots of enthusiasm, skills and interests. Meet and work alongside like-minded people of all ages and backgrounds, improve your CV, see and help amazing wildlife and get fit. You’ll have a sense of achievement from seeing a good job done and knowing that you’re helping a great cause. Where appropriate, many of our partner organisations offer training and development to help you help our landscape. As your experience grows, so do we – great news for our wildlife and environment!

Find out more about volunteering opportunities at some of our partner organisations, including The Greensand Trust, The Wildlife Trust BCN, Clophill Eco Lodges, RSPB The Lodge nature reserve and gardens and Shuttleworth.
