Volunteer Role: Outdoor Learning & Education Volunteer

Ribble Rivers Trust (RRT) is an environmental conservation charity delivering catchment-wide activities that will improve, protect, and create a mosaic of habitats and land uses that will support healthy rivers.  Our work includes everything from peat restoration to hedgerow and woodland creation, to river “re-wiggling” and, importantly, sustainable agricultural practices. We are a charity that gets things done and has a positive impact on our area.

We are looking to recruit volunteers who will use initiative, work well in a team, enjoy working outdoors and teaching the next generation. In this role you will support the Outdoor Learning Officer in the delivery of educational sessions related to coastal, river and freshwater environments. The role will include outdoor learning and aims to inspire a love of nature, increase physical activity and provide exciting sessions that link to the school curriculum in several areas.

We are looking for volunteers to work in the Fylde Coast area of the catchment, particularly with schools in Blackpool. There will be opportunities to work around the Ribble Catchment if desired.

Experience in or with primary schools or youth groups would be preferable, but a willingness to learn and a passion for the environment is key.

Due to the nature of this role  there will be an informal interview process and successful candidates will be required to undertake an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
