Spurn Ranger Volunteer

Spurn National Nature Reserve has many features that draw visitors from all over including; wildlife, heritage and history. Spurn has had many different uses by humans over the years and you can see the rich history of the landscape right before your eyes across the whole reserve, not to mention the abundance of wildlife; wading birds on the salt marshes, kestrels hunting, rare migrants popping in for a welcome respite, deer and even seals if you’re lucky! As there are so many interesting features on this site that is 3 miles in length, we’d like volunteers to help engage with visitors at our new Discovery Centre and at specific points on the site at high tides and to help keep people safe.

You’ll be part of a team of volunteers who help to make Spurn a fantastic place to visit, you’ll like spending time talking to people and helping them to have an inspiring day. Full training and induction to the role will be given, you’ll just need to bring lots of enthusiasm and a willingness to make each visitors trip to Spurn a memorable one!

Check out our Facebook page and see what you could be involved in!

Come and meet the team at an Open Day on Saturday 23rd March at the Discovery Centre Spurn. It’s our one year anniversary since we opened the new centre to the public and we’ll be holding an open day to celebrate. We’ll be combining the celebrations with the opportunity for anyone thinking of volunteering at Spurn to drop in and speak to us and some of our existing volunteers. The event will be running 11am until 3pm, so please come by and find out how you can get involved!
