Volunteer Wildlife Gardener - Dungeness


Why we want you

Some of our wonderful volunteers have created an inspiring wildlife garden at our visitor centre. We are very happy to say the wildlife has started to move in, and the plants are becoming nicely established.
What the garden needs now is someone to give it a helping hand staying neat, tidy and presentable for the humans and wildlife that have been flooding in to visit it!

What’s in it for you?

You'll be helping the RSPB to give nature even more homes on it's stunning Dungeness reserve. Plus you'll be inspiring visitors to give nature a home where they live.
Come and spend a couple of hours a week getting close to the amazing nature that blossoms amongst the Dungeness shingle, and join the friendly team of volunteers that the reserve could not run without.
