We are restoring rare heathland habitat on Kinver Edge to provide a home for species such as adders and common lizards. Join our weekly volunteer groups to clear the encroaching scrub, monitor wildlife, improve paths and much more.
Volunteers bring the Rock Houses to life. You will teach visitors about the history of these quirky homes, and show them around the restored rooms. If you enjoy working with people, and can offer a warm welcome, then please get in touch.
If you are a people person and love interacting with the public, then being part of our visitor welcome team could be just for you. Meeting and greeting visitors, helping them plan their visit, answering queries and supporting the tea-room are all some aspects of giving our visitors a great welcome.
Learning and events
Fancy making rugs the traditional way? Are you brilliant at bug-hunting? There's nothing like a great day out, and we need events assistants to make them happen. With plenty of school visits, there's opportunities to work with young people too.
