By volunteering, you won’t just be having a positive impact in your community, you’ll also meet new people, gain a wide range of skills and experiences and improve your CV.
The volunteering opportunities at our sites can be tailored to your skills and interests and the best thing is – you don’t have to have any prior experience to get involved!

We run several different types of events all through the year at our sites. These range from regular guided nature walks to Family Fun Days, community open days and seasonal events.
These can be organised by the site rangers or by a local ‘Friends of’ group and there will be different types of support you can do, such as help out at a specific event, or speak with the ‘Friend of’ group to get involved in bigger events.

If you have a particular skill or area of knowledge, such as bird or insect identification, you may be interested in leading or assisting with activities or workshops.
If you don’t have much time, or don’t want to get involved in specific activities, you can still get involved simply whilst you enjoy the park.
Here are some ideas:
You can register your interest with The Land Trust directly or with a site ranger and you will be contacted as and when opportunities arise.
Contact us at the Land Trust directly.
Find a site near you – the contact details of the site ranger are listed in the ‘Visitor Information’ section.
Working with The Land Trust and Groundwork has been a great success for all of us at Sherburn who took part. They were a brilliant team and had great knowledge about the local wildlife.
