Whether you have an hour or a day to give, have a look if there is an opportunity for you!

Volunteers are invaluable to the work of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and there are many ways that you could help out...

If you are interested in volunteering, you can find out more on the menu on the left. Opportunities are organised by geographical area. We recommend that you explore our current volunteer roles, see which spark your interest and then email our Volunteer Team, who will then support you in taking your volunteering forward.

If you work for a company and are looking for an activity for you and a group of colleagues to take part in as part of a company volunteering day then please look at our employee volunteering webpages.


"Volvox" is our Quarterly Volunteering Newsletter. It has a complete calendar of all the practical conservation task days across Yorkshire, as well as volunteering news and stories: download the latest copy here.

Task Day Updates can be found here.

*NEW- A group covering Moorlands in York has arranged several taskdays. The 'Moorlanders' will be delighted to see you on every other Tuesday 10am-12.30pm, on 9th & 23rd September for woodland work and ponticum bashing. For further information please contact our volunteer team on volunteering@ywt.org.uk*
