Weekend roles

Fancy something different to do on a Saturday? Either on your own or with the whole family, join our weekend volunteering group who meet on the first Saturday of each month. You can discover the secret scenery of Gower whilst undertaking a range of practical conservation work.

Weekday roles

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays we have volunteers working with the ranger on a variety of practical conservation tasks, from beach cleaning to dry stone walling, fencing to habitat management. There are new skills to be learnt, people to meet, and places to go.

Corporate volunteering

Does your company encourage you to take a volunteering day, whether that’s for team building or to participate in a community engagement project? There are loads of things going on to get involved with in South Gower, like clearing the local beach or creating habitats for all kinds of wildlife.

Day events

Come and help at our events and activity days. Got a story to tell or interested in a specialist subject? Come and inspire others in your passion for the great outdoors.

Help us to survey wildlife

With all the work we do it is important to check how effective our management is. We need help to survey our habitats, plant and animal life. It’s amazing what you can find out there if you just look a little closer.
