Every year volunteers donate their time and skills to help us conserve and enhance the Wye Valley National Landscape.

Volunteering is a rewarding way to get directly involved in the work of the National Landscape Team. As well as conservation work, volunteers help in other ways. During the 2018 Wye Valley River Festival volunteers made walking staves for ‘pilgrims’ to use on pilgrimage walks to the ‘Museum of the Moon’ art installation at Tintern Abbey and they also led these popular walks.

Perhaps you have specialist knowledge of the Wye Valley or its wildlife that you would like to share with others? Sharing knowledge and learning new skills, making new friends, getting fit and improving your well-being whilst discovering some of the most beautiful parts of the UK, are a few of the rewards of volunteering with the National Landscape Team. Our volunteers include students, retirees, career changers and part-time workers and we always welcome new volunteers.

Conservation Volunteers

The Volunteer task force makes a special contribution to the conservation and management of the Wye Valley National Landscape. Volunteers work on landscape and wildlife conservation tasks, including drystone walling, scrub clearance, tree planting, hedging and improvements to pathways. Conservations tasks are held monthly throughout most of the year. They are an excellent way to learn a new skill, meet new people and become knowledgeable about the Wye Valley and the landscapes and wildlife that make it so special.

Project work/ work experience

The National Landscape also welcomes volunteers who are prepared to offer a block of time to help develop a particular project or assist with research. These opportunities may particularly suit students looking for work experience.
