Booking essential

Join the RSPB for a fun day of volunteering on the reserve. Tasks will vary from helping us save nature on the reserve to looking after our two legged visitors too. Please call the Ribble Discovery centre to book as places are limited.

Sunday 14 April - Love My Marsh Clean Up: Help us clear rubbish off the marsh that's been brought in by the spring high tides

Sunday 14 July - Help refresh and preserve the reserve's viewing screens with a lick of paint (water based, non-toxic, wood treatment used)

Sunday 6 October - Raking up vegetation. Help us clear areas of cut bramble and scrubby vegetation to encourage our banks to become grassier and better for small animals like field voles and bank voles to live.

Sunday 26 January - Love My Marsh Clean Up: Help us clear rubbish off the marsh that's bee bought in by the high winter tides.

Tools, gloves and training will always be provided on the day. 

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear as this is an exposed site and can be muddy where we are working.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Unfortunately these activities are not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs and we recommend children be over 5 years of age. No dogs please.

The event is free but donations are always welcome.


Meet in the RSPB reserve car park on Marine Drive, Southport, Merseyside
