Volunteer at Strangford Lough
Happy Volunteer’s Week and Thank You to our hard working volunteers! The Strangford Lough team is supported by the hard work and dedication of a team of amazing volunteers. This week (June 1st -7th) we celebrate Volunteer’s Week which gives us an extra opportunity to say a big thank you to them for all that they help us to achieve together.
The National Trust manages an incredibly large area of land and foreshore around Strangford Lough, including many islands and areas of farmland and woodland. With a team of only four Rangers, we really couldn’t cope with such a large area, if it wasn’t for the dedicated assistance of its many enthusiastic volunteers.
There are many environmental benefits from this work, but the individuals who take part also gain personally from the experience. Volunteering is a fantastic way to stay fit whilst spending time in the fresh air and discovering some of the most inspiring parts of the countryside.
Constantly learning about our wildlife and discovering new skills , there is an enormous amount of pride and satisfaction from doing something which is really worthwhile. Our volunteers get all of this as well as having great fun with like-minded people.
We are currently not recruiting new volunteers to the Strangford Lough Team but keep an eye on this page and we will let you know when we are.
