It supports and adds value to the work of public, private, voluntary and community organisations within the Park.


Current opportunities

The Aberfoyle walking group meet every week on a Monday morning to go for a short, accessible walk, before winding up in a café for a cuppa and a blether. This simple activity has enormous health and social benefits for the walkers, as well as providing an opportunity to connect with and enjoy nature. We are looking for walk leaders to provide a friendly face on the walks and keep participants safe and happy throughout the walks. This is an opportunity for you to help out in a local community, and also to gain new skills, as well as staying active and making new friends on the walk. All our volunteers receive walk leader training, and are also offered other trainings throughout the year, as detailed below. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining us!
