Volunteering

We couldn’t do what we do without volunteers!

So many of the things we do are undertaken or supported by our volunteers, and if you are keen to get involved there is a whole galaxy of opportunities – whether you can commit to regular help or just when you are available.

Each of the reserves offers volunteering opportunities and whether you prefer to be indoors or out, energetic or not, there is always some way you can give your valuable time to help us. Company, exercise, a chance to learn new skills, fun and the knowledge that you are helping Hawk and Owl Trust, and the wildlife that lives on our reserves, is all part of the package!

If you have an existing skill you’ll be able to put that to good use, but we also offer all the training and equipment you may need.

There are numerous volunteering opportunities at the reserve and in the visitor centre, as well as in Head Office. Outdoor volunteering can be split broadly into wardening and monitoring and practical.

Our volunteer wardens commit to half a day or a full day once a week, fortnight or month. Walking gently around the reserve (or remaining in one of the hides) you can enjoy watching the plentiful wildlife and showing visitors what is about, talking to them about the reserve, the wildlife and our plans for the future of the reserve. If you wish, we also record birds, mammals, dragonflies, fungi and other wildlife on the reserve and you can be a part of this, learning and having fun as you go..

Our visitor centre volunteers are based in our superb visitor centre and are often the first point of contact for visitors to the reserve. If you can commit to half a day or a full day once a week, fortnight or month and enjoy talking to people then this could be the role for you! Other volunteers get involved in the practical conservation work on the reserve, building nest boxes for our Adopt a Box scheme, or even help in building fences, buildings and other infrastructure on the reserve. If you have admin skills we may well have work in Head Office at Sculthorpe that you can help us with!
