Volunteers play a vital role in the success of the Trent Vale Landscape Partnership and are involved at all levels.

There is a wide range of volunteer and learning opportunities available, including hands-on wildlife conservation, searching for long-lost heritage and archaeology, helping with events and workshops, and development and promotional work. So if you are interested in helping us to increase awareness about the river, its nationally important habitats and heritage features, and to improve access for people we would love to hear from you. Please contact us.

Why volunteer for Trent Vale?

There are nationally important wildlife habitats and heritage features in the Trent Vale, and by volunteering you will be making a real difference maintaining these valuable areas.

You could gain experience, work closely with local experts, meet new people, or simply get involved in the first Heritage Lottery Fund Landscape Partnership scheme in the East Midlands. No previous experience is necessary, though if you do have skills to offer we'd be delighted to hear from you. Depending on the task, we offer full training.

For more detailed information about specific events, activities and workshops please see our get involved pages.
