Explore how you can get involved in the Living Landscape. Volunteer your time, learn some new skills or get fit . We have something for everyone from practical conservation with the Nature Ninjas to helping with events.


Sunday volunteer sessions

We hold volunteer work days on the first Sunday of every month, delivering practical conservation tasks such as the bashing and pulling of invasive non-native species, path maintenance and simple wildflower meadow management.  All this is done as part of a fun inclusive group which will find a task to suit every ones abilities.  We will also be running  ID workshops and surveying techniques from organisations such as the British Dragonfly Society and Buglife etc. as a way of giving something back to our volunteers in areas they care about.

Interested? Just email us to join or call us to join in


We can also be reached during office hours on 01236 617 113.

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.
