There are lots of ways you can get involved from helping with general administration, social media and promotion, fundraising, the ‘how to’ of running a small charity, being part of a governing body, practical conservation tasks, wildlife recording and more.

Volunteering at any level is immensely rewarding, and if you think like us that wildlife conservation and the health benefits to you are worth it you’ll meet lots of like-minded people.

Working Parties

Cotton End Park volunteers meet each Sunday morning and occasionally during the week.

Mill Park Reserve working parties are the first Saturday of the month 10am–1pm and every Thursday 9am-1pm.
