The Queen Elizabeth Country Park Volunteer Ranger Service provides people with the opportunity to become involved in a range of activities including nature conservation work, visitor management, environmental education and interpretation, woodworking / carpentry and administration work.
The Volunteer Ranger Service also provides training opportunities, social events and friendship.
We believe that is everyone's right to get involved in the conservation and protection or our natural heritage. So whether you can volunteer every day or once a year you will be most welcome to join the Volunteer Ranger Service.
The Volunteer Ranger Service is also a key partner in the Queen Elizabeth Parks Twining Project which brings together the staff and local communities of Queen Elizabeth Country Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, so we are keen to hear from people with an interest in helping develop these links, especially in helping develop the education links between our Ugandan and English Twinned schools (see www.queenelizabethparks.org).
The Youth Ranger Service runs alongside the Volunteer Ranger Service. Young people usually come on a weekend and work with our adult vols. So if there are any young people wanting to help thy have to be 14 and over please get in touch.
Drop in for a coffee and a chat.
All you need is enthusiasm, a willingness to help others and a desire to do your bit for nature conservation.
