Avon Heath Country Park and Eastern Area Sites - Volunteers

Come and help us manage and conserve our sites across East Dorset.

Our volunteers contribution makes such an amazing difference to the Country Park – from practical conservation tasks to helping out in the visitor centre, building pond dipping platforms, updating office records, counting orchids on South Park and butterflies around our transect route.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet other like-minded people, keep fit, enjoy some fresh air, learn more about the Country Park and learn new skills. The groups are friendly and welcoming and everyone is welcome, no matter what your level of knowledge or ability. 

  • regular volunteering tasks at Avon Heath Country Park on Thursdays and one Sunday a month during autumn and winter
  • help run events and cover the shop during holidays and weekends
  • every Tuesday, come and help the area team on Rights of Way across East Dorset
  • regular volunteering opportunities at Slop Bog Nature Reserve and occasional ones along the Castleman Trailway

Please contact us for any more information. We look forward to seeing you!
