Our volunteers are essential for carrying out the vital work on the River Tyne and its tributaries that has regenerated large stretches of the river over the last ten years. Volunteers can choose how much time they contribute and can get involved with a diverse range of tasks including events, surveys, education, practical tasks and IT.
Volunteer groups operate up and down the length of the river and its tributaries, and we are always interested in hearing from people who are interested in volunteering. If you volunteer for us you will have opportunities to learn new skills, get outside and be part of a friendly team, so if you’d like to get involved email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01434 636902.
We have tasks to suit everyone, whether you like working in groups, by yourself, outside, in the office or prefer to be at home. We can tailor the work to your interests, skills and availability and provide training, equipment and transport where required.
If you have even a small amount of spare time and would like to find out more about the river, volunteering is a great way of doing it.
Volunteers can choose to work with us to improve the ecology of the River Tyne, to provide education programmes, attend events for publicity and carry out species monitoring on the river. The more physical conservation tasks vary from removing invasive species to restoring riverbanks and planting trees to reduce the risk of flooding. Our volunteers tell us it’s the perfect excuse to spend time outdoors and enjoy a new skill.
