Volunteering at Slimbridge

Whether you’re looking to meet new people, learn new skills or spend time in an inspiring environment, there’s a volunteer role for you at Slimbridge Wetland Centre. Just a few hours spent volunteering can make a world of difference.

Volunteer Open Days

Come along to an open day on Wednesday 4 or Saturday 7 March, from 1-4pm, to find out about volunteering opportunities at Slimbridge Wetland Centre.

This year we’re recruiting for visitor engagement roles, from welcoming visitors to leading tours, and the open days will provide a chance to find out more about these roles.

You can also join an introductory guided walk, or attend a talk on our Slimbridge 2020 project, and there’ll be staff and volunteers on hand to answer your questions. There’s no need to book, just turn up on the day. If you can’t make it, or you’d like to know more please contact the volunteering team.
