We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers with good people skills to join our team of Smardale volunteers.You will be helping us monitor the wildlife at Smardale Nature Reserve, particularly the red squirrels and assisting visitors to get the most from their visit. A good knowledge of local birds and wildlife would be useful but the ability to engage with people is most important. Our team will work on a rota basis from the end of March to the end of October, so ideally we are looking for volunteers who can make a regular commitment.

The work is outdoors and it is not always sunny and warm on the nature reserve! There will often be a member of Trust staff on the reserve too.
