What we're looking for
Do you remember finding your first ladybird? Share in the excitement as a volunteer and you will have the opportunity to deliver our education programme to visiting schools where typical activities range from hands on exploration of meadows, woods and ponds to playing environmental games. To help us deliver environmental education at our reserves we need you to deliver fun and exciting activities as part of out of classroom learning. Our Schools on Reserves programme aims to give schoolchildren the chance to experience nature first-hand and you can be part of that exciting journey of discovery! Located on the southern shore of the loch, RSPB Scotland Loch Leven provides a home for a huge diversity of wildlife. The reserve is located within easy travelling distance of Scotland's central belt and welcomes around 70,000 visitors each year who come for the stunning views and varied wildlife. The reserve has a long history of environmental education, welcoming its first school pupils in 1967. Today the learning team continues to provide high quality, curriculum linked learning to around 2000 school children each year. The reserve has a number of woodland and wetland teaching areas for children to explore and boasts a well equipped classroom within the visitor centre. Our formal teaching is complimented by our family programme of events and activities which encourage exploration of nature. Our natural play area provides plenty of opportunity for challenging, creative and confidence building outdoor play all year round.
