Discovery Hut wardens are the public face at the Seaton Wetlands.

It's important that you enjoy meeting people  and have good communication skills.

The wardens welcome people to the Wetlands and answer enquiries about the site and hand out maps and events guides. 

An interest in wildlife and/ or birds is essential but expertise is not expected...being a warden is a great place to learn more!

The wardens serve teas and coffees, show people the resources at the centre including the Nature Table and collect visitor data.

Most of the Discovery Hut wardens are trained to hire out the tramper, an off road mobility scooter available for use at the Seaton Wetlands for people with limited mobility. The wardens also hire out Pond dipping equipment.

The information centre is open during the weekends in the winter (there are three two-hour slots to cover between 10am and 4pm) and for extended 3 hour slots Saturday - Monday during the summer. You can be flexible and choose your shifts and how much you'd like to get involved. You will volunteer in a pair whenever possible.

All of the volunteers are offered Tramper training, first aid training and there are at least two social events a year.
