### Explore opportunities to get closer to nature through volunteering, education and training


There are a host of ways that you can support your local nature reserve, from visiting and joining events, to fundraising and volunteering.

Across the UK, the Wildlife Trusts care for 2,300 diverse nature reserves where wild plants and animals are protected - from ancient woodlands, lakes to urban parks. Nearly all of their nature reserves are free to enter and most people live within a few miles of one.

The Wildlife Trust’s offer a variety of ways of getting involved in their work, such as volunteering. Opportunities include community gardening, species surveying, plant identification and GPS mapping. You can even run Wildlife Watch groups, which enable young people to discover and explore their local environment. Volunteers carry out a huge range of tasks and it doesn't have to be outdoors - you can make use of your organisational, IT, administrative or financial skills too.
