The reason I volunteer is to be able to spend more time in nature, carrying out practical conservation work which is something I really enjoy. When I found out about the opportunity to volunteer on a local nature reserve I was really excited and I have been volunteering regularly (at least once a week) with Carbon Landscape since August 2017. I really enjoy being out with nature, meeting new people and just having fun.
Volunteering with the Carbon Landscape has given me the opportunity to develop and learn new skills, I’ve gained AQA qualifications through Carbon Landscape in peatland conservation and leading a group.
I have also gained my outdoor first aid training through Carbon Landscape.
Volunteering has so many benefits, it keeps me fit, I meet new people and make new friends. It’s also just really nice to know that I’m making a positive contribution to the world and wildlife, but also hugely important carbon stores
