What we're looking for
Do you love the natural world and want to share it with others? Could your family help other families discover their local nature reserve and recommend the best bits? We have secured National Lottery Heritage funding for a programme of events, activities and site improvements to make RSPB Old Moor even better for our wildlife and visitors. A major aim of the project is to engage with families and capitalise on Old Moor's ability to introduce young people and families to how amazing wildlife is. Could you help us to do this? As we focus on reaching out to families, we are looking for people: Who are cheerful and friendly Who can start a conversation with anyone, and engage with children especially who are itching to share their enthusiasm for wildlife and show off their local reserve to interpret the reserve to families and first-time visitors who may be new to wildlife and bird watching to share stories of the reserve's wildlife and heritage with children and their families. Who can help families make the most of their visits to Old Moor and give them nature wow! moments. Could you spark the imagination with tales of the Bittern's return to the valley or the epic journey of our eels? Are you bubbling with enthusiasm and have the sense of fun to engage with young children? Obviously Covid-19 is affecting the delivery of our National Lottery Heritage project, but we are keen to recruit volunteers so that when restrictions lift, we are ready to go. We are advertising a similar role, our Wildlife Guides, for engaging with adult visitors rather than families.
