If so, why not volunteer?
There are numerous environmental organisations and community groups in the Chilterns that need volunteers, and the range of opportunities is wider than you might think. If you’re practical and like to get your hands dirty, there are lots of regular volunteer work parties across the area with tasks ranging from scrub and path clearance to tree planting and stream management. If you like identifying and monitoring wildlife, there are groups looking for wildlife recorders. Perhaps, you enjoy walking? Then maybe you could combine a walk with inspecting the state of a footpath or the signage of a promoted route, or checking on the sheep grazing a nature reserve? Even if you prefer not to work outdoors, many organisations have office-based volunteering opportunities. The Chiltern Society offers many of these types of volunteer activity, but for the full range of opportunities available in the Chilterns, look at the Directory below.
Wherever you live, in or near the Chilterns, there’s an organisation or group near you with a range of volunteering options. Download our directory to find out what’s on offer.
Here at the Chilterns Conservation Board, we have a number of vacancies for volunteers. Please follow this link for more information: http://www.chilternsaonb.org/conservation-board/vacancies.html
