Volunteer with SNH

Volunteering with Scottish Natural Heritage is a great way to help improve Scotland’s outdoors, learn new skills and inspire others.

Our Volunteers’ Handbook tells you everything you need to know about volunteering with us.

If what you read interests you, let us know that you’d like to become a volunteer by filling in our Volunteer Expression of Interest form.

We will then get in touch with you - among other options, we provide volunteer activities at our National Nature Reserves.

Support for environmental volunteering

As well as offering opportunities to volunteer with SNH, we help other organisations to do the same. Our aim is to work with partners to develop a vibrant culture of environmental volunteering in Scotland.
