Inspiring children about wildlife

Learning volunteers

Can you engage with children, inspire them to love the outdoors and help them to learn about the fen, it’s history and wildlife.

Learning volunteers assist in the delivery of education activities to visiting schools, and children’s events during the school holidays. Past experience of working with children is useful.
