Do you want to connect with nature in the capital? There are lots of different ways to get involved with London Wildlife Trust, from one off events to regular volunteering sessions, in locations across London. Our volunteers help London's wildlife and nature thrive.

Whether you're a nature novice or an ecology expert, everyone's welcome, search below to find something that suits you.

If your enquiry is about getting involved as part of a company group, please visit our Wild Workdays page. Wild Workdays offer fantastic team-building and staff development opportunities, experiencing conservation work first-hand on one of our beautiful reserves.

Volunteering in North London

Practical conservation work at nature reserves in North London including Camley Street Natural Park.

Volunteering in South London

The South Reserves Team are responsible for the management of many varied nature reserves across a wide geographical area of south London. The primary reserves that we manage are chalk grassland habitats at Hutchinson's Bank, Chapel Bank, Braeburn Park, Salt Box Hill, Riddlesdown and West Kent Golf Course, each with its own unique character and wide range of species.

Volunteering in East London 

We have a wide range of volunteering opportunies at our latest nature reserve, Woodberry Wetlands in Stoke Newington. 

Volunteering in West London 

We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities across nature reserves across West London, including Gunnersbury Triangle, Crane Meadow, Gutteridge Wood, Ten Acre Wood, Ickenham Marsh, Frays Farm Meadows SSSI and Denham Lock Wood.

Volunteer for your local group

From organising walks and talks to developing local biodiversity action plans, our local groups are very active in their corners of London.

Always keen to recruit new volunteers, your local group would love to hear from you. 

Vocational volunteering (internships)

London Wildlife Trust has vocational placements (or internships) in a range of departments. We feel that properly planned and managed volunteer roles are a useful way of getting experience that may help to gain employment.

Vocational placements have a clear role description, are part time – normally three days a week for three to six months - and we reimburse travel and other out-of-pocket expenses.

Currently available roles are listed on our volunteering opportunities page. 


From bat walks and butterfly spotting to arts, crafts and bushcraft, London Wildlife Trust organises hundreds of events across London, most of them free. Search our events listings to find out what's going on near you.
