Do you enjoy the outdoors and want to inspire young people to learn about the environment?

Shropshire Council’s outdoor partnerships team at Severn Valley Country Park (between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster) are recruiting event and education volunteers to help rangers with a busy event and education programme at the country park.

With over 50 schools visiting every year and a busy events calendar, potential volunteers will get the chance to help with activities such as pond dipping, minibeast hunts, orienteering, nature crafts and large scale events such as our annual 10k run.
