Project Work

For three or four days a week our volunteers mainly focus on practical hands-on outdoor work. The nature of conservation and sustainability work means the quite often these jobs will be unglamorous or repetitive, but we have fun as a group. Be prepared to get your hands dirty!

Some skilled volunteers may get involved in PR, marketing, web work, CAD, GIS, video production etc. In fact, many specialised projects lurk quietly in the shadows just waiting for volunteers with the right skills to come along, so do let us know if you've got a passion or a particular skill-set that would be of use!
