Volunteer Ranger (Staunton Country Park)

This role works alongside other volunteers and Staunton Country Park Ranger staff to carry out a wide variety of conservation and estate management tasks. This is an exciting time for Staunton Country Park, which has been awarded a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant to restore Staunton’s Regency heritage, enhance community facilities for park visitors and to increase our volunteer offer. 

The Park has different types of habitats including woodland, grassland, streams and a lake, so there are always plenty of conservation tasks to do.

Skills

Many of the tasks are dependent on the seasons. Throughout a typical year the conservation tasks could include:

  • Coppicing, woodland management, dead hedge laying and scrub management.
  • Installing and maintaining gates, fences, signs and benches.
  • Keeping footpaths accessible by clearing overgrowing vegetation and maintaining the surface.
  • Wildlife surveying and monitoring.
  • Keeping the park tidy and litter free.
