Conservation Volunteers

Conservation Volunteers

If you would like to do your bit to help your local country park we can offer a number of opportunities to take part in a variety of practical conservation tasks and wildlife surveying.

3We are looking for local people to join our friendly team of volunteers to provide help across a variety of tasks which help us look after the habitats and wildlife. We welcome anyone who likes working outdoors. No previous skills or experience are necessary just a keenness to help out. All the opportunities below are offered from Moors Valley.

Practical Conservation and Maintenance Volunteers

If you enjoy the outdoors and practical work, becoming a practical conservation volunteer may be just for you.  With over 240 acres of parkland and 900 acres of forest to look after, the Ranger team are always looking for more hands-on individuals to join the volunteer force. The friendly group meets every first Wednesday of the month with a 9.30am start and flexible finish times. There are also extra task days if and when needed. No previous experience required, just the willingness to get stuck in and be outdoors in all weathers. Informal training and full support provided.
For more information please contact Sara, Estate Ranger, stschersich@christchurchandeastdorset.gov.uk

Wildlife Survey Volunteers

If you enjoy the outdoors and have a passion for wildlife, becoming a wildlife survey volunteer may be just for you. With a large variety of habitats (woodland, wetland, heathland, grassland) and two SSSIs supporting a huge number of species, the Rangers are always looking for knowledgeable enthusiasts to keep an eye on the flora and fauna found in the Park. You will be contributing to national databases as well as informing the future management of the habitats. You don’t need to be an expert and you may be able to be buddied up with existing volunteers if applicable.
