Have you ever considered giving up some of your time to volunteer? Do you love nature and want to help protect it? Then why not consider spending some of your free time volunteering with the RSPB. On Saturday 17 October, staff at RSPBâ€™s South East Essex reserve will be holding a â€˜Volunteering Tasterâ€™ event to show you how you can get involved. This is a free event, running from 10:00 â€“ 4:00pm â€“ everyoneâ€™s welcome to come along and it will be a great opportunity to chat to volunteers about their experiences.Â
Volunteering at South East Essex Marsh is a great opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills as well as helping nature. Work can vary from helping in the visitor centre or office to getting your hands dirty with our wardens. Whatever your skills and interests there will always be something for you to get stuck into.
â€œWe are particularly short of volunteers for bird friendly schools. If you can spare a few hours a month, Iâ€™d love to hear from you and I can tell you more about joining our friendly team!Â Give me a call on 01268 498624 or drop in to our event on Saturdayâ€ said Leila Peacock our Education Manager.
