What we're looking for
Do you remember fishing for sticklebacks? Share in the excitement by assisting us in our delivery of our learning programmes to visiting school groups. Typical outdoor activities include hands on explorations of meadows, woodland and ponds and wildlife watching from hides. Our exciting learning programmes aim to give young people the chance to experience nature first-hand and by helping the groups you can be part of that exciting journey of discovery! We are looking for enthusiastic people to work alongside our Learning Officer undertaking essential supportive tasks e.g. helping small groups of children, carrying equipment, setting up and clearing away. Fairburn Ings is an oasis for wildlife in the Aire valley. With thousands of ducks and geese in the winter, and dragonflies, terns and swallows in the summer, there is something exciting to see every day of the year. With two large classrooms, a boardwalk and large wildlife-viewing and pond-dipping platforms, Fairburn Ings is a marvellous place for young people to have an unforgettable experience of nature.
