Volunteer

Posted on

Volunteers are incredibly important to charities and throughout the Ribble Life Together project we’ll be looking for volunteer input to help us with some important work.

With over 1,400 miles of rivers and streams in the catchment there are opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get involved.

Our volunteers we have already planted thousands of trees, put up hundreds of meters of stock fencing and removed countless invasive plants- volunteers provide the vital manpower we need to deliver our habitat projects and without their help we would struggle to maintain our current activity level.

The Ribble Life Together Project will host over 150 volunteer events over the next four years; some of the activities undertaken will include; tree planting, stock fencing, clean ups, invasive species control, and various monitoring activities.
Volunteering is incredibly rewarding and an excellent opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and meet like-minded people, as well as gaining experience and learning new skills.

All ages and abilities are welcome and the team will always be there to help. Basic training is provided free of charge and we’ll provide all the equipment needed. All we ask is that volunteers bring wellys, waterproofs, warm clothes, and a packed lunch.

If you would like to volunteer please send an email to admin@ribbletrust.com to put your name on the mailing list and you will receive notifications of upcoming volunteer events.
