If you like getting your hands dirty and love the great Scottish outdoors, whatever the weather, then this could be just the ticket!
Every week, we organise practical work groups to carry out various habitat management and estate work around the RSPB site. We need your help to keep on top of essential reserve management and one-off tasks across a variety of beautiful habitats.
Typical tasks include fencing repairs, scrub removal, vegetation management, invasive species removal, ditch clearing and lots more!
All tasks are vital for conservation of important wildlife and habitats - you would be directly contributing to the protection of our countryside - and for retaining good access to, and around the site.
An opportunity to help with habitat management, become part of a small, friendly team and learn about the running of the site, plus be involved with one of the RSPB's most exciting sites. You'll get a chance to enjoy the place, learn more about our plans and really get your hands dirty! You'll also pick up or be able to share skills and techniques.
This is an excellent chance to make a genuine contribution to wildlife conservation. You will gain a valuable insight into the workings of Europe's largest conservation charity.
The ACF is one of the country’s largest voluntary youth organisations. If you can give up one or two evenings a week and want to do something different with your free time, this could be exactly what you are looking for. You do not need a military background and we will provide all the training you require.
For most people taking part in volunteering projects is about 'giving something back', socialising and making new friends, or getting to know the local community. Others enjoy finding a worthwhile hobby that gives them quality time away from work or a busy lifestyle, or knowing they are making a difference to the lives of young people.
But as any one of our thousands of adults will tell you, it is watching the cadets grow and develop, and knowing that you have helped them along the way, which is the most rewarding part of being in the ACF.
