Most of these events are family activities on Cambourne Nature Reserve such as walks, outdoor art and pond dipping, which happen during school holidays. We also deliver walks, talks, and other events for adults, as well as some indoor activities at our head office and school sessions. A volunteer in this role might come along to the event to ensure participants get the most out of the activity, or they might support behind the scenes by publicising the event locally or helping to plan events.

A volunteer may work on one, or more than one aspect of this volunteer role:

Planning an event:

  • Meet with the Communities and Wildlife Officer to plan the activity
  • Help create resources if needed (equipment supplied)

Publicising an event:

  • Put up posters locally
  • Publicise the event through local social media

On an event:

  • Keep track of equipment
  • Keep track of timing
  • Interact with participants by answering questions and pointing out wildlife
  • Ensure people are following health and safety guidance
  • Be a back-marker on walks  

Equality and Diversity: We value diversity and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
