What we're looking for
We are looking for volunteers to help our brilliant new Active in Nature scheme as a **Nordic Walking Leader We are looking for people to lead walks out amongst the beautiful wildlife at the reserve, chat to people about the RSPB and have fun! Our Active in Nature scheme encourages people to get outdoors and be active here at Rainham Marshes we hire out bicycles for people to explore along the River Wall section of the reserve, climb boulders, have a running club, yoga, Nordic walking and more! We want our visitors to enjoy the fantastic opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of the reserve from different angles whether on top of a climbing boulder or from exploring along the river wall on a bike and adventuring further into neighbouring valleys. These experiences will give participants the opportunity to see a wide range of wildlife including seals along the Thames River, lapwing soaring above the reed beds, marsh harriers hunting over the reserve and a variety of insects residing in the vegetation and we would like you to help us! We need some help delivering our Nordic Walking scheme by leading our regular walks and helping us to promote Nordic Walking at Rainham Marshes. Don't worry we will show you how we do things, you will get the chance to work with other people and we can train you! If you are already an experienced Nordic Walker brilliant! If not, we can give you some training. **Nordic Walking is fast becoming the 'go to' health and exercise regime for many people of all ages across the country. Nordic walking is a full-body exercise which improves posture, is easy on the joints and suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
