Keeping it Wild Member
We're looking for a Keeping it Wild Team Member!
As a member of the ‘Keeping it Wild’ team, this volunteering role for 13 – 25yrs is about active participation.
The ‘Keeping it Wild’ youth team meets on a regular basis to carry out a wide variety of activities which can involve helping with wildlife work and monitoring nature, community events, practical conservation, campaigning and fundraising.

Do I need experience?
No specialist skills are required we just request our team members to be motivated, passionate and enthusiastic about the environment and wildlife.
New members need to feel able to work as part of a team to help improve the environment and to encourage others to do so and be willing to try new things and learn new skills whilst having great fun too!
When and where do you meet?
Whilst we often meet at our Wildlife Trust offices for meet-ups in Nottingham city, we also do plenty of activity outdoors and we ask young people to be prepared and to dress for the weather. Depending on the activity, we recommend wearing something not too precious (which can get messy), with sturdy footwear or wellies when required.
We provide branded clothing for new team members and all the tools and personal protective equipment such as gloves.
How much time do I need to commit?
There is no time commitment to being a member we just ask that you come as often as you can (we programme weekly activities in the evenings and on weekends). We encourage and support you to consider new opportunities as you reach the upper age limit of the group. New opportunities could be to become a volunteer activity leader.
How long does the role last?
Ongoing until you reach the upper age limit of 23yrs.
