Lead wildlife and heritage guided walks  with Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust (Ref: 1627)
 
Opportunity picture
They are looking for volunteers who would be interested in leading wildlife and heritage guided walks at Greystones Farm in Bourton-on-the-Water. The site is home to beautiful SSSI grassland and a scheduled ancient monument dating back to the Neolithic age and has visible ramparts.

It is an excellent place to escape to, with glorious wildflower meadows. The River Eye runs through the reserve and provides a multitude of wildlife to discover, including heron, butterflies, otter and the much-threatened water vole.

They want to show off this amazing site to visitors, as another feature to this traditional Cotswold village often voted as one of the prettiest villages in England.
What are they looking for?

They will provide training and a template to lead the guided walk so you don't have to be an expert, although they always appreciate any local knowledge you may have. This would be a great opportunity for someone interested in starting a new hobby or for someone looking to gain more knowledge about this beautiful area of the County.

Practical

No set commitment level but being available to run walks on at least two days a month would be preferred, this could be on a weekday or weekend.

When: Mornings/Afternoons, any day

Where?

Greystones Farm, Greystones Lane, Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, GL54 2EN

About Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust
 
Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust logo
Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust was founded in 1961 by a group of volunteers, led by Sir Peter Scott, who recognised that local wildlife was under threat. Since that first meeting, 50 years ago, the Trust has grown and now has over 500 active volunteers.

As they continue to protect wildlife and expand their areas of wildlife protection they are always in need for more volunteers to not just help on their nature reserve but engage with local communities through events and fundraising.
