Volunteer with us

Are you passionate about British wildlife? Do you want to learn more and share your enthusiasm for nature with others?

Join our volunteer team and make a difference! The Avon Gorge & Downs Wildlife Project are looking for individuals to help with our education programmes. Our volunteers play a crucial role in delivering engaging sessions to schools, play schemes, and youth groups on the Downs.

Whether you enjoy working directly with the public or prefer supporting behind the scenes, we have the perfect opportunity for you:

  • Education sessions: Assist with delivering interactive sessions to young people, inspiring the next generation of nature lovers.
  • Creative events: Help to plan and deliver our children’s events, family days and community activities such as the Bristol Festival of Nature.
  • Office support: Contribute to the development of educational resources and assist with essential office tasks.

As a volunteer, you’ll enjoy free access to walks, talks and outdoor sessions, where you can learn from, and engage with wildlife experts.

Ready to share your passion for wildlife and contribute to our mission? Join us today, and help protect and celebrate the natural world.
