Will Jones, Wild East Devon Engagement & Participation Officer:

Our events programme caters for all interests, ages and locations across East Devon and we love getting volunteers involved in the delivery. Working directly alongside the members of the Wild East Devon staff team, volunteers will help teach rockpooling to youngsters, bug hunting to adults and everything in between.

Volunteers are taught all the activities and information in advance, so no previous experience is necessary. We do ask that volunteers have a can-do attitude, willingness to get stuck in and a natural enthusiasm for engaging with families about nature.

Volunteers have the opportunity to develop new practical skills and an understanding of habitat management techniques. All volunteers are offered first aid training and there are plenty of social events throughout the year. Booking is via the online volunteer portal.

All of the volunteers are offered training including first aid and there are plenty of social events throughout the year.
