A small organisation like us relies on the support and generosity of volunteers, who help us achieve our goals by giving us their time and skills. Volunteering is an ideal way to try out something new, be sociable, and gain valuable experience to put on your CV.
We are not currently running a Youth Ranger scheme. We hope to run more Youth Ranger in the future as soon as we have secured funding to run the project. Please continue to check our website for further updates.
The Youth Ranger scheme is a volunteering opportunity specifically for young people aged between 13 and 19 years old. Its an excellent way to take an active role in wildlife conservation and habitat management, develop a range of new skills and gain practical experience alongside a team of like-minded and enthusiastic people.
The scheme lasts for approximately 10 weeks, and comprises of a mixture of evening meetings and training sessions, and practical conservation tasks held at weekends. Participants will also have the opportunity to work towards a John Muir award during the scheme, in recognition of their achievements.
As a Youth Ranger you could be involved in:
Creating trails, interpretation and information boards
Building boardwalks, bird hides and fences
Planning and managing events for the public
Managing habitats for wildlife
And lots more
We are currently looking for funding to support another Youth Ranger Scheme. If you would be interested in making a donation to support the Youth Ranger scheme please email us
We can offer work experience opportunities for people interested in working in conservation or countryside management, or help you with finding a study project. Work experience should be arranged via your school. Please contact us for further information and availability.
