Holkham National Nature Reserve Needs You!

We are looking for enthusiastic people to volunteer and help us improve and protect the beauty of Holkham NNR. We need passionate volunteers young and old to help carry out vital practical conservation tasks in sunshine, wind and rain! If you'd like to join us, in wheeling a barrow, planting a sapling or simply handing out the warming cuppas, we'd love you to join us!

Our volunteer days are friendly and informal and no prior experience or skill is necessary just a passion and enthusiasm to get involved. Volunteers will work alongside our skilled and experienced wardens carrying out various habitat management tasks and survey work, but best of all you’ll have a great time while doing it! Everyone is welcome and even a small commitment can have lasting effects on the reserve and its wildlife.

For those looking for a job in the environment volunteering with Holkham NNR not only offers you the chance to learn new skills, make new friends and enhance your CV but you will get the opportunity to gain that all important hands-on experience desired by so many employees.

Hokham NNR will be running conservation workdays every week on Wednesdays, and the first Sunday of every month, you can come along as often or as little as you like. 

Refreshments are provided but volunteers should bring their own packed lunch, sturdy waterproof footwear, wet-weather gear and enthusiasm! Volunteers from all age groups are welcome, however the minimum age is 18 unless accompanied by an adult.

Your time and skills could make a real difference, come and join us.
