Volunteering on Living Water
The Living Water Project in Glasgow and North Lanarkshire aims to create and restore new habitats for our amphibian friends and raise awareness of their conservation issues.
We host a variety of volunteer days and we are looking for more volunteers to help us with our many and varied tasks. If you love to get outside and have no fear of using a spade or a bow saw then our practical conservation days are just for you! Activities vary from week to week but in the past our volunteers have helped dig ponds, remove scrub to enhance sunlight to ponds and create hibernacula for sheltering amphibians and reptiles. These days offer a great chance to stay fit and healthy, meet like-minded people or add habitat management skills to your CV.
Alternatively, if people engagement is more your thing, Froglife Scotland also host events to raise awareness for amphibian and reptile conservation. These may take the form of pond-dipping and crafts with children or providing advice to the general public on related conservation issues. These days offer a fantastic opportunity to volunteers to help staff engage with an audience and teach them all about amphibians, aquatic invertebrates or how to manage their garden for wildlife.
Our conservation days are updated and listed on the events page but we also have a Froglife volunteer mailing list which keeps Froglife volunteers up to date with all the opportunities on offer. If you would like to be added to the volunteer mailing list or have a query regarding any aspect of volunteering with us please contact the Glasgow office on 01413 390737 or email James Stead (Fieldworker) at email@example.com.
