What we're looking for
Do you remember seeing your first stickleback? Share in the excitement as a volunteer by assisting us to deliver our schools on reserves programme to visiting schools where typical activities range from hands on exploration of meadows, woods and ponds to playing environmental games. Our Schools on Reserves programme aims to give schoolchildren the chance to experience nature first-hand and by leading a group, and you can be part of that exciting journey of discovery! We are looking for people to assist our Learning Officer with making sure the children get the most out of their visit. Sandwell Valley nature reserve, on the edge of England's second city is bursting with wildlife, it is an excellent and inspiring place for the education of young people. With its colourful history of monks, monasteries and mines; this landscape now boasts an incredible variety of wildlife and habitats. It is so important because unlike many other nature reserves, this one is in touching distance of hundreds of homes, businesses and several motorways, in other words, thousands of people just waiting to discover the nature here.
