Grass Wood Warden

Do you already walk in Grass Wood and want to use your time to help support the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust in welcoming people to explore and enjoy the reserve responsibly? Do you live in or near Grassington and are interested in exploring this local site further while supporting YWT? Then this could be just the role for you!

Grass Wood has many features that draw visitors from all over Yorkshire and beyond, for lots of different reasons, including wildlife, walking and heritage. Grass Wood has had different uses by humans for over a thousand years and you can see the rich history right before your eyes. Not to mention the abundance of wildlife; rare and beautiful plants, breeding woodland birds and incredible butterfly species.

As a Grass Wood Warden, you will provide visitor assistance and site care over the weekends. You will interact with visitors on site, offering information and help if needed, thanking dog owners for walking their pets responsibly or asking them to do so if they are not already. You will also be responsible for keeping the site tidy and free of rubbish, recording the number of visitors, any issues on the reserve and any natural history/species records of interest. We will provide you with the support you need in how to do this.
