SummaryDo you enjoy spending time outdoors? Why not try leading a guided walk around the nature reserve.
What will I be doing?
Leading guided walks for small groups of visitors around the nature reserve. The walks could be general, seasonal or they could reflect your own interests. They do not have to be based on wildlife and we would welcome other themes.
How much time do I need to commit?
Ideally, we would be looking for two walks a year to make sure we keep in touch and keep your knowledge and walk leading skills fresh.
Do I need to be an expert?
No, although it would be helpful to have some knowledge of either the reserve or your chosen subject, but we can help to provide information. It would be possible for you to assist other leaders before taking the lead yourself.
