Fantastic opportunity for volunteers to help shape an exciting new events and education programme for children at Queenswood Country Park and Bodenham Lake. Get involved, and help connect children to nature in Herefordshire!

We are super excited to be able to welcome enthusiastic volunteers who are committed to engaging children with nature at Queenswood Country Park & Bodenham Lake Nature Reserve. Both these sites are soon to be managed by a partnership between Herefordshire Wildlife Trust and Herefordshire New Leaf, with an exciting array of events, Forest School and WildPlay sessions being held throughout 2016.

The bulk of commitment will be duing the school holidays, with a particular emphasis on the Easter and summer holiday seasons.

As this role is working with children and young people, all successful applicants will be required to complete a full DBS check. Training for event management and managing groups of children will be provided. All applicants must be 18 years old or above.

If you are able to commit to help with running our events for children, then please do get in touch with Haylay Herridge (details below) preferrably by email. Please provide information on any relevant experience you may hold, although applications will be accepted from individuals with no prior direct experience.
