There are numerous opportunities to volunteer and get involved with environmental protection in your local community.

We welcome the involvement of people of all ages and backgrounds. 

You can help us in many ways, for example: attend our regular working bees, carry out bird surveys, promote our branch at market days, plant and tend to native plants, build stoat trapping boxes, help with the stoat trapping and monitoring programme, help with our major projects, fundraising, newsletter folding, envelope stuffing and delivery.

You may even be able to offer a particular area of expertise or become even more involved and join our active committee. Many hands and small steps get the job done, and result in a better environment.

Volunteering is not only interesting and rewarding but it is also satisfying to know that you are making a difference. As a volunteer you meet people of all ages, develop skills and find new friendships.

If you have a good idea then we are always keen to hear about upcoming opportunities and new projects.
