Volunteer at the Sculthorpe Moor Reserve!

Opportunities are always available for potential volunteers. From building, nurturing, and conserving to joining our enthusiastic wardens. Opportunities are also available inside our Visitor Centre, as well as internship and apprenticeship programmes.

In the visitor centre, our volunteers are the first point of contact for visitors. We are interested in energetic and people-focused individuals who can confidently assist with all manner of public queries! If you enjoy talking to people then you will get on fine in this essential reserve role!

Practical ‘hands on’ volunteers are an important cog in the wheel at Sculthorpe Moor. Their hard work includes helping build walkways, hides, vital infrastructure and repairs. Our volunteers also make bird boxes for the Hawk and Owl Trust Adopt-a-Box scheme on-site. It’s a hands-on role that really makes a difference in our conservation efforts! 

Volunteer wardens can enjoy a gentle pace around the reserve walkways and hides. This vital role is vital for bridging the gap between the reserve and the public. A warden will get to know the reserve inside out! As a warden, there are even opportunities to help us with our regular wildlife surveys.

The Therapeutic Horticulture Team is a twice-weekly group of volunteers that do fantastic work at the reserve. Together this team have created wildlife havens and habitats all over the reserve, with each session providing variety and fulfilment. The project aims to provide a “green experience” for adults with mild learning disabilities and/or mental health issues, as well as those who may feel lonely or cut off from society.
