Tentsmuir NNR - Getting involved

Get involved as a volunteer at Tentsmuir NNR. There are also opportunities for outdoor learning.


Why not join us as a volunteer at Tentsmuir NNR?

There’s always a lot going on, and we would really value your help. You’ll get involved with a range of tasks – from practical estate management to survey birds and invertebrates.

Volunteers wanted on 27 August 2019 to move a fence needed for cattle grazing and 24 October 2019 to improve a pond for dragonflies.  We also need volunteers to survey and monitor plants.

If you’re interested and would like to see the volunteer role description, please contact the reserve manager.

Outdoor learning

We’re keen to see Tentsmuir NNR used for outdoor learning for all ages and will support visits whenever we can.

If you’re interested in bringing a school, college or university group to Tentsmuir, please contact the reserve manager.

We supply an education pack for teachers and leaders planning a group visit to the reserve. It has ideas for exciting and educational activities about the natural and physical environment. It also provides plenty of opportunity for cross-curricular work.
