Have fun, make friends, help wildlife!

Volunteers are essential to our work.

Our volunteers help in a range of roles from practical conservation and farming to education work and spreading the word. Whether you’re able to offer a few hours a week or a few days a year, we’re sure there’s an opportunity to suit you.

If you only have...
5 minutes ... tell a friend about us
1 afternoon a month ... help out with one of our family events
1 evening a month ... give talks to groups around the county
1 day a month ... join a work party at your local nature reserve
2 days a month ... get involved in your Local Group committee
1 or more days a week ... join our Roving Volunteers helping on reserves across Worcestershire

What’s in it for us?

Volunteers are our most valuable resource and together we achieve so much. Volunteers help to manage our 75+ nature reserves, collect records of the county’s wildlife, build our knowledge and expertise, help our admin needs, run hundreds of activities and inspire children across Worcestershire.

Read Jane Scott's article about the Worcestershire Conservation Volunteers to discover how much fun they've had throughout the years.

What’s in it for you?

I have found fun, friendship and gained knowledge of the countryside around me

As well as knowing that you’re making a difference, you’ll also meet new people and make new friends. We hope you’ll also have some fun on the way! You’ll get fresh air and exercise, learn new skills, add to your CV and expand your knowledge.

   

Have a look at what some of our volunteers are saying...    

“It’s fun and it’s really rewarding, knowing that I am helping local habitats and wildlife.”

“As a newcomer to Worcestershire it helps me to get and keep in touch and integrated into the local community of the county and area.”

Have a read of WildTimes, our quarterly volunteer newsletter (3MB).

Volunteers have access to a wide range of branded clothing; price list and order form can be downloaded.

Or, if that isn't enough to persuade you, check out our Conservation & Conversation 30 Days Wild blog entry.

How can you help?

Whatever time you’re able to contribute it will be appreciated. Whatever your skills and experience, we’ll be able to find something suitable for you to help with – from practical conservation to office work or helping with events.

Everyone is welcome; whether you’re 18 or 80, looking for work experience or to share your experiences, we would love to hear from you.
