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

If you already volunteer with us your Volunteer Supervisor will be in touch once volunteering can get going again.

We are not currently taking new volunteers.


Why not join us as a volunteer at Taynish NNR?

There’s always a lot going on, and we would really value your help. You’ll get involved with a range of tasks:

  • rhododendron and beech removal
  • drystone walling
  • path work
  • creating a range of habitats for nature
  • surveying and monitoring
  • working with visiting groups
  • assisting with events and guided walks

Our volunteer work party meets on Thursdays and you’ll be made very welcome. If you’re interested, please do get in touch. 

We’re also looking for a volunteer to help with butterfly and dragonfly monitoring at Taynish in the summer months.

Give us a call to find out, what’s involved, how much time it will take, and what training may be offered.
