Events Volunteers

Looking for something less physical? Then keep reading to find out if our events volunteering is more your thing. When we are at public shows and events we are always amazed at how few people know about the town’s amazing wildlife.  We are looking for people to share their passion of wildlife and the local environment.  The events we attend range from small guided walks to the larger scaled Gardening Scotland weekend, held annually at the Royal Highland Showground. What better way to spend a few hours sharing your passion for wildlife and conservation to inspire families to get out and explore their surroundings.
