Volunteer Opportunities

In addition to the specific vacancies listed below, the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire has a wide range of volunteer opportunities available on an ongoing basis. These range from Local Groups that organise outings and talks to work parties that get out on our reserves and do the heavy lifting. If you like working with children, then maybe you'd enjoy volunteering for Wildlife Watch or becoming an Education and Community Volunteer. We depend on our volunteers to help us make our three counties better for wildlife. Whether you can offer a few hours a month or a long-term commitment, please do get in touch.
