Education Volunteers: inspiring the next generation

At Ribble Rivers Trust (RRT), we believe in the power of education, especially when it comes to sparking a lifelong love of nature, rivers, and the environment. Our Education Volunteers play a vital role in inspiring the next generation of river heroes.

Whatever their roles, our volunteers are the backbone of our mission to protect and restore our diverse habitats and the wildlife that calls the Ribble Catchment home. Our Education Volunteers are the crucial link in this chain of positive change. Thanks to their dedication, we can reach out to schools, offering immersive educational sessions that go beyond the classroom.

What do Education Volunteers do?

In collaboration with our Outdoor Learning Officers, our volunteers are on a mission to bring the wonders of coastal, river, and freshwater environments to life. These outdoor sessions not only increase physical activity but also link into the school curriculum, providing students with exciting and enriching experiences, sparking curiosity and fostering a genuine love for the natural world.

Volunteering with us is more than just sharing knowledge; it’s about creating a positive change. If you are interested in sharing your passion for our planet and creating a generation that cares then please contact our Outdoor Education Officer, Jane, for more information.
