What we're looking for
Glasgow Wildfest is a month long festival this September connecting people to Glasgow's urban green spaces. A partnership between the RSPB, Glasgow City Council, and community groups and gardens from all over the city, we need volunteers to facilitate and document this inspiring festival. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with various events and activities that will make up Wildfest 2017. 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. There are various roles we are recruiting for, these include: Events Assistants: Welcoming members of the public to events and registering them onto walks and talks as well as giving them information about the day. Helping set up, and take down of events, directing people to the appropriate places, providing assistance to visitors, including those with special needs. Reporting any lost children, and all issues to the Wildfest coordinator's. Nature Connectors: Facilitate activities such as mini-beast hunts, pond dipping and making homes for nature. Nature Recorders: Join our walking and cycling tours and record the wildlife you find. Photographic Journalists: Document the Wildfest through film and photography. Promotion and Social Media Volunteers: help us to promote this event around Glasgow. Facepainting Volunteers: help us to raise money for the RSPB through nature inspired facepainting at our various events throughout September.
