What we're looking for
Gardens have a huge part to play in providing a safe place for nature to thrive. At Flatford Wildlife Garden we are working to inspire people to make space for nature in their gardens. We need your help to bring Flatford Wildlife Garden alive with your enthusiasm for wildlife, gardening and the RSPB. Your time will be spent engaging with visitors as to how they can help wildlife in their own garden and pointing out species, albeit a bird, butterfly or dragonfly, in our garden. Families are frequent visitors to the garden and child nature connections and interaction is a very important part of the RSPB's work. There is always a family trail available and activities in the school holidays to help with. A main focus of your work will be around encouraging visitors to support the RSPB through becoming members and via donations. The more income we get like this, the more work the RSPB can do in Eastern England and further afield to save our threatened wildlife. It helps us fund nature conservation, not only the ongoing land management of our reserves but also by creating and enhancing magnificent wild spaces for nature and people to enjoy. It is therefore important that you can inspire people about the work we do and warm them up to the idea of membership.
