Our volunteers

Volunteers repair a moorland path with flagstones

We have over 70 dedicated volunteers at Marsden Moor who are involved in all aspects of our work. From habitat conservation to updating our social media, growing and selling plants to leading guided walks across the moors; the skills and knowledge brought by our volunteers feed into much of the work we do. With a small staff team, volunteers play a huge part in what we can achieve.

By becoming a part of the volunteering team you’ll be able to learn new things, enhance your CV, try new activities and make friends all whilst sharing your skill-set and teaching others. With such a variety of volunteer roles, there’s something to suit all interests.

Volunteering is rewarding work and our volunteers know that the time they choose to share with us plays a crucial role in helping us to continue to protect and conserve the special landscape that we love. We couldn’t do it without them.

" After retiring I joined the Monday conservation group. What a privilege it is to be saving the moorland landscape with like-minded colleagues from all walks of life."
- Alan Schofield
