Volunteer Vacancies

The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is a leading voluntary organisation for the conservation of wildlife and wild places in Lincolnshire. We work actively on conservation issues and manage almost 100 reserves.

You can play a part in this vital work. Volunteers of all ages contribute to the Trust's work bringing a range of skills, interests, time and enthusiasm. There is a range of voluntary opportunities: indoors and outdoors, skilled and unskilled, regular and casual. You could find yourself surveying wildflowers, putting up fencing, assisting in a visitor centre, helping children enjoy a minibeast hunt or stuffing envelopes.

Wayside Wardens

The duties of a Wayside Warden involve keeping a watch on the verge, periodically clearing litter, reporting any problems (such as fly-tipping or damage) to the Trust and completion of a simple question and answer annual report. Botanical expertise is an advantage, but not essential, and there is an opportunity to participate in one or more of three RNR training evenings held each summer to sharpen identification skills.

Current vacancies:

Wayside Warden at California Plantation (A153 adjacent to Rauceby Warren Reserve, TF025435-035442)

Wayside Warden at Holywell to Careby (Holywell to Careby Road, opposite east end of Holywell Lake, TF006160-009161)

Please contact Sue Curtis, Reserves Administrator, on 01507 528373 or scurtis@lincstrust.co.uk for more information.

Voluntary Reserve Managers

The Voluntary Reserve Manager is ‘the eyes and ears on the ground’ and a crucial support to the Trust’s Regional Warden. Duties involve keeping a regular watch on the reserve, ensuring that it is safe and well maintained, reporting any problems (such as fly-tipping or damage) and completion of a simple question and answer annual report.
