Volunteer role spotlight: Nature's Champion Volunteer
The exhibition, Faces of Change ‘Nature’s Champions’ is a partnership between the National Trust and the National Portrait Gallery drawing on portraits from the Gallery’s Collection. It will focus on individuals who have transformed the way we perceive, experience, and aim to protect the natural world. It will be on display in the Picture Gallery at Attingham from Saturday 22 June to Sunday 8 April.
Featured sitters include environmental activists, scientists, poets, politicians, campaigners, gardeners and broadcasters who have affected how we interact with our environment. The exhibition includes outstanding paintings, sculptures, photographs and recent commissions.
If you're a nature lover, art lover, student, group or family who’d like to volunteer to welcome visitors to the exhibition during the summer you can find out more information and apply here.
