Our District Volunteers support local private gardens to open for charity. This is a fun and varied role for anyone who loves gardens.
District Volunteers work closely with garden owners to make sure that their opening is a success by helping with publicity, signage, admissions, refreshments, car parking and occasionally even some last-minute gardening! It is a very varied role that enables you to use and develop skills such as event management, communication, working with the general public and horticulture. Our volunteers are essential to the work that we do and our district teams are the lynch pin in our ability to raise nearly £400,000 for charity each year.
An RSPB pin badge volunteer plays a vital role in raising funds within their local community, helping to give nature a home across the country. The role involves looking after an existing pin badge box site, or placing new ones, topping it up with badges, collecting and banking funds, as well as recording monies online and ordering replacement stock.
For just a couple of hours each month, a little time makes a huge difference to the RSPB’s work.
The role is flexible to suit the volunteer’s existing commitments and full training and support will be provided. Travel expenses can be reclaimed to ensure the volunteer is not out-of-pocket.
It is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to boost their skills and make a difference through volunteering, helping to save Scotland’s wildlife and habitats.

Eadha is one of Scotland's leading Aspen conservation charities. Aspen is a rare native tree but one which is potentially very useful and productive. Aspen rarely sets seed so propagating it is challenging. We survey the remote areas of the country to find surviving trees from which we then extract root cuttings for propagation. We then use a specialised lab to generate planting stock using tissue culture methods. They supply us with small plants which we pot up and grow on in our nursery. Aspen supports a more wildlife than any other tree and we develop woodland projects into which it can be planted. We are also growing other native trees and wildflowers.
We are looking for volunteers to help us in our nursery at Bishopton to help with propagation. pot on the aspen trees. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to work, to learn new skills and help to conserve native species.
