Conservation Volunteer - Biodiversity Action Team

TCV's work in Essex is very diverse. You could be improving footpaths for people one day and enhancing an urban nature reserve the next, coppicing woodlands for wildlife or managing a pond for plant and animal diversity. Our volunteers are as variable as our tasks. We welcome all ages from all backgrounds - providing tools and experienced leadership to enable the most novice newcomer to work effectively alongside the most regular 'old-hand', taking positive action to improve their environment. We also provide training events every year in addition to a variety of practical tasks.

No previous experience is required. All you need is an interest in conservation or working outdoors. All activities are practical outdoor tasks but we aim to ensure there is something for people of all abilities to join in.
