Volunteering at Stowe

As a charity here to protect our special places for everyone to enjoy, we simply couldn’t do it without the aid of thousands of volunteers. From keeping our properties alive with intriguing stories to being at the forefront of conservation, volunteers are the heartbeat of the National Trust.

Role of the month - Ranger Activity Volunteer

Whilst you'll find lots of volunteering opportunities to choose from, we've chosen this new and latest role to highlight. You'll help deliver a variety of group activities for families and young people including practical tasks, but more importantly sharing your passion for the great outdoors with others. These could include ranger walks, bat walks, wildlife surveying, mass participation opportunities like the Big Bulb Plant and tree planting. To register, please sign up here or email us.

" At the Stowe and Aylesbury Portfolio during the 2019/20 season, 503 volunteers worked in 65 roles, donating 56,476 hours. We simply couldn't achieve what we do without their contribution. Join the team and help us look after your local special place."

Team building days 

If you have a workforce of employees and wish to support a charity, Stowe is a great place to choose. We have a dedicated programme of activities for groups to participate in, whilst helping our gardening team achieve projects with mass help. What will take our small team of gardeners months to complete, will in comparison take one day for a group of 20 or more volunteers to achieve.
