What we're looking for
We are looking for enthusiastic, outgoing volunteers to become part of our Family Events Volunteer Team. Like the A-Team for nature... You will be part of a team who will inspire the public about nature, facilitate valuable connections to the natural world, and engage people in the conservation work that we do, through public engagement and community events. This varied role involves attending and helping to deliver family activities at events across Edinburgh and the Lothian's; from pond dipping at Bio-blitzes and creative hands on activities at the Edinburgh Science Festival, to facilitating self led activities at national shows, such as Royal Highland Show or Gardening Scotland. You will be working with RSPB staff members (and sometimes on your own) where you will be helping to run engaging activities for families and children. We also have a fantastic partnership with The Helix Park in Falkirk, where we often run a number of family events. This team will be helping to deliver activities from pond dipping and bug hunting to self led activities and specific events at this great location throughout the year.
