Give something back
Volunteering is a fantastic way to give something back and we have many dedicated volunteers that kindly give up their time to help us manage this special reserve.
Wheatfen is a relatively small reserve but there is always a great variety of work to be done. Our volunteers play an integral part in the life and future of the reserve and have a huge input to conservation management at Wheatfen. No two days volunteering on the reserve are the same. Our volunteers are involved in activities such as coppicing trees, helping to main the pathways, cutting, harvesting and burning reed, undertaking wildlife surveys and even scrub bashing to remove invasive willow.
If your skills are more indoor focused, with a new research library in the study centre we would also like volunteers to help manage and develop the library and work on maintain our ecological records.
