We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Description

Our events volunteers gain experience in events management, environmental education and public engagement. Jupiter's events tend to be around 2 hours long and will focus on a theme such as 'brilliant butterflies', 'captivating creepy crawlies' or 'phenomenal pond-life'! Most events are targeted at children but we do run events for adults as well. Our events run most weeks through the year but there is no need to commit to every event. Please get in touch if you would like to get involved!
