Work Party Volunteers

Do you want to make a difference for wildlife in Essex? Work Party volunteers are required to conduct management of nature reserves in Essex. Volunteers will report to the reserves office at the Essex Wildlife Trust HQ. Volunteers will attend work parties to help with the practical management of nature reserves for Wildlife in Essex. This will include practical conservation tasks mostly consisting of coppicing and scrub clearance. Full training will be provided on site.


Volunteers need a willingness to be outside for an extended period of time, to closely listen to a supervisor and an ability to work safely with other volunteers. A good level of fitness is required to be able to work on uneven ground and use hand tools safely.
