are looking for volunteers to help us welcome visitors back to our brand-new
visitor centre at Langdon! At Essex Wildlife Trust our mission is to connect
local people and families with the wildlife on their doorstep and protect
habitats for future generations to enjoy.
There will be a wide variety of roles available in our centre, ranging from talking to visitors about wildlife and the work of the Trust, keeping the admission desk and the gift shop running smoothly, or helping with our exciting new events programme. Full training is provided, and we can tailor your time with us to suit your interests, expertise and time commitment.
In return, we offer the opportunity to become part of a thriving community of committed volunteers and an integral part of the organisation. You will develop new skills and connect with other wildlife enthusiasts in your area. As well as making an invaluable contribution to a worthy cause, we provide logo-branded uniform, two free nature courses per year, 20% discount in our centres and shops, and special volunteer thank you events.
