Environmental volunteering can be an educational opportunity too!

If you are interested in making new friends and challenging themselves consider volunteering with one of the many volunteer groups operating on the coast. Volunteering is a great way to have new experiences, build knowledge and skills and is a hands on way to make a real difference. Volunteering can also be a great addition to your resume as well as being good for your health and fitness.

Many groups offer learning opportunities such as informative walks and resources. Get in contact with a local group to find out what they offer. For a contact list and details of local coastal volunteer groups click here.
