VOLUNTEERING WITH THE MONTGOMERYSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST
Volunteers are very important in ensuring that the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust remains at the forefront of nature conservation work in Powys. To achieve many of our targets volunteer input is essential and volunteers make a considerable contribution to our success. Volunteers are one of our most valuable resources with their enthusiasm, commitment, experience and skills.
How can you help?
Volunteering is a rewarding experience allowing you to develop skills and interests, to meet new people and above all to contribute to the conservation of some of Montgomeryshire's most valuable natural areas. The level of commitment is entirely up to you and how happy you feel about giving up some of your time. Whatever time you can give will be a vital contribution to our work.

Volunteering on Nature Reserves
This is the easiest and quickest way to get involved in our work. We run regular work parties on various nature reserves each Wednesday throughout the year and Saturday work parties are currently being trialled too. The tasks are varied and hopefully interesting. You do not need to be a member of the Trust to join the work parties, although many volunteers do choose to become members. No previous experience is necessary as you will be given all the on-the-job training and guidance you need. For an up-to-date work party list, contact the office.
'Nurtured By Nature' - A Supported Volunteering Project
The Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust is delighted to have been awarded a grant from Environment Wales towards a volunteering opportunity at the beautiful Severn Farm Pond community reserve in Welshpool. The project is for anyone who would like to try something new in their lives it will enable folk to learn more about our environment, volunteer for wildlife as well as try some new skills and meet new people.
The project is currently running on Wednesday mornings at Severn Farm Pond reserve from 10am - 1pm and will be a friendly drop-in opportunity to get involved in re structuring the lovely but tired sensory garden, a little reserve maintenance and to develop some new and exciting demonstration areas to inform and inspire visitors to the site. Several community training sessions will be available free to volunteers to learn a variety of new skills together based around the themes of sustainable living.
If you would like to get involved or would like more information about this project, then contact Mel Chandler – Community Partnerships Officer at the office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
