Volunteer Surveyors needed to help provide unbiased information about birds and habitats. All training days are free. Each day is a stand alone day - so you only need to attend one day. You do not need to be a member of BTO.
Volunteers needed to help with habitat management tasks such as scrub removal, invasive species control and tree planting. We have some special species on our Hills and we really need your help to save them!
Would you like to learn how to sail and help people with disabilities get out on the water? We would like to invite you to this volunteering taster session, weather permitting. You will do practice sessions on the boats, boat maintenance and sailing theory. We also have shore based activities if you don't want to go on the water.
