Volunteer placements

Coronavirus update:  In line with current guidance from the Scottish Government, all NatureScot volunteering activity is suspended unless it can be done safely whilst at home.

Among other options, we provide volunteer activities at our National Nature Reserves for people who truly care about the Scottish countryside.  For volunteers who can commit to a minimum of 1 month we can also offer residential placements.  

In return for offering your valued time volunteering on our reserves, our volunteers get the chance to learn a whole manner of skills, and experience working in the spectacular landscapes of Scotland. The more time you stay with us the more jobs you will be likely to experience and the more you will learn.
