When visitors arrive at the nature reserve it will be a ‘visitor volunteer’ there to welcome them; and a welcoming smile can really turn someone’s visit from an ordinary one, into an amazing one.
As the first point of contact for the public, visitor volunteers will offer directions, information about wildlife and promote the work of the RSPB to make sure we are growing support for nature. This can mean encouraging the visitor to visit the lakeside viewpoint to see some wildlife, offering them a family activity backpack, encouraging them to have a wildlife friendly garden, or even asking if they would like to become a member of the RSPB.
As a visitor volunteer you might be stationed in the welcome area of the new visitor centre or in the lakeside viewpoint
Don’t know your mallard from your moorhen? Don’t worry, lots of our volunteers learn about the wildlife as they go along, we’re not looking for identification experts, just good communicators who care about nature conservation.
One day per week.
