What we're looking for
We are looking to recruit a Residential Volunteer to become a vital member of our team on one of our newest and most exciting reserves. We are offering the chance to volunteer on Franchises Lodge reserve within the beautiful setting of the New Forest. The reserve is in its early stages of set up. This allows for the exciting opportunity to learn all that is involved in these early stages and for you to help shape the long term vision for the site. There will be a lot of survey opportunities during the Spring and Summer as well as gaining first hand experience of reserve operations. This exciting new reserve is a significant acquisition for the RSPB and you will be helping to protect and enhance the species and habitats found on site, benefitting its ecological value within a unique landscape. There will be opportunities to learn how to develop a Priority Landscape Plan and management plan. You will be contributing towards establishing Franchise Lodge as a premier destination for young people aged 15-25 with the setting up of our new residential nature outreach centre. There will be a range of courses and sessions that you could support including outdoor survival skills and mental well-being sessions.
