Minsmere Team Challenge

Minsmere Work Centre

Why we want you

Much of our nature reserve management can only be carried out by hand because heavy machinery could disturb the important wildlife we are working to protect. As an independent registered charity we rely on volunteers to help us carry out this work. You could be helping with various tasks, depending on the time of the year, but examples include helping with fencing, cutting back vegetation, removing ragwort, helping maintain our footpaths for visitors etc. Get in touch to find out what is on offer!

What’s in it for you?

RSPB Team Challenge offers an unusual and cost-effective alternative to the myriad of outdoor 'corporate training' days now on offer. Your employees will join regular RSPB staff at one of the RSPB's top nature reserves and become 'Wardens' for a day - making a real contribution to wildlife conservation while working as a team and having fun.

The skills you need

Team Challenges can be muddy and energetic, but that's all part of the fun! We will provide supervision and any tools or materials necessary to complete the task (unless obtaining them is part of the challenge!).

No experience is necessary but you do need to be able to do physical work.

Volunteers will need a packed lunch, plenty of drinking water, stout shoes, waterproofs and a change of clothes in case of bad weather, sun cream and hats if hot.

Your time

Minimum commitment: 1 - 2 days per year
Duration: 9am - 4pm
Period: All Year Round

Notes

Your help makes a direct impact on the work of the reserve and we are grateful for your contribution in this way. We do also ask for a donation to cover the cost of organising and equiping team challenges of a minimum of £25 per head.

The RSPB speaks out for birds and wildlife, tackling the problems that threaten our environment. We rely upon memberships and donations to fund our work. By volunteering your time and skills, you could make a real difference to the work of the RSPB. Nature is amazing - help us keep it that way.
