What we're looking for
'The Lookout' is the newly renovated hide at the RSPB's Bowling Green Marsh nature reserve in Topsham. It's more than a hide, it's a place of discovery and 'a window to the wild' for families to discover and enjoy. We need you to bring it alive with live interpretation of the surrounding natural beauty. The Exe Estuary is beautiful and incredible for wildlife. We need to ensure every visitor feels at home, welcome and inspired by what they have seen, discovered and learnt from their experience at The Lookout. We need you to be the story teller, the welcome, the smile, the one who shows the visiting family what can be created at the activity table. And the one who shows all ages how to hold and focus binoculars, to bring that wildlife spectacle closer, because picking up binoculars for the first time can be confusing and intimidating especially for little hands. We will also need you to keep The Lookout inviting and a pleasant place by making sure it looks ship shape and looked after. The star attractions need looking after too and so we will need you to keep the bird feeders topped up. Oh, and your visitors too by offering them the warming touch of tea and coffee. You will be encouraging visitors to not only love and enjoy nature, but support it too by becoming a member of the RSPB, or supporting the RSPB's work in other ways. Nature needs us more than ever, so encouraging members to join is an essential part of this role.
