This blog is a celebration of the nature in the South East and highlights ways you can get involved and explore nature in the region. If you've got news of the South East’s nature that you'd like to share, please contact the RSPB South East office on 01273 775333 or email SERComms@rspb.org.uk
If you can spare a few hours to help, we are always grateful for volunteers!
We offer plenty of practical conservation roles, but you will find a huge range of RSPB volunteering opportunities to choose from.
By volunteering with us you could gain more than just a good feeling, you can learn a whole new skill set. Try your hand at catering, retail and even education!
Below are a few of the upcoming opportunities in the South East -
Conservation work parties -
We're looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our conservation work parties, to help with vital habitat management and conservation work at our Tudeley Wood and Dungeness reserves in Kent, and Fore Wood reserve in East Sussex. Tasks include scrub clearance, coppicing, litter picking and trail and hide maintenance.
