There is always a lot to do on our reserves, with sessions including habitat restoration, grassland management, tree care, and citizen science
We need help running education sessions for young people. Activities include minibeast safaris and pond dipping
From river restoration to mammal and dragonfly surveys, making green roofs or rain gardens, with communities across London, there are lots of ways to get involved
We're looking for volunteers to greet people at our visitor centres, answer questions, and help out on reserves where necessary
Our volunteers help London's wildlife thrive – without them we wouldn't be able to continue protecting and enhancing nature
There are lots of different ways to get actively involved with London Wildlife Trust, from regular workdays to one-off events, in locations across the capital.
Whether you're a nature novice or an ecology expert; everyone's welcome to get involved. Volunteering not only helps nature and wildlife but helps you gain new skills and experiences, learning from qualified professionals. You can volunteer outdoors on our reserves, in London’s green spaces, and with communities across the capital, to help people protect and enjoy nature.
We look after more than 40 nature reserves across the capital and there is always a lot to do. Practical conservation includes outdoor activities such as habitat restoration, grassland management, tree care, building fences, and citizen science surveys. For those willing to make a bigger commitment, you can become a member of one of our teams running environmental education sessions, learning how to deliver an environmental education programme and shadow experienced staff until you can lead your own sessions – both family activities and delivering key stage activities with schools. Find out about venture volunteering with the Trust's ongoing projects, where opportunities include river restoration, surveying dragonflies, creating rain gardens, and much more. Or, you can become one of our wardens welcoming people to our visitor centres and helping look after our most popular reserves.
We also have other volunteer roles for guiding walks and talks, helping out in the office, challenging planning applications, and leading workshops. Come and join the team!
Whatever you want to do, the map below shows all our volunteering opportunities across London. Please call or email the listed contact before you attend one of the sessions, so they can give you the information you need to take part.
All of our volunteers must be aged over 16 years. Under-18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Expenses can be provided for travel within Zones 1-6 and for a lunch of £4 or under. Any equipment needed for practical conservation is provided by us, but do wear suitable clothing and footwear.
