Volunteering Opportunities at the
Centre for Stewardship in Falkland
The Centre for Stewardship covers 1500 hectares of land, farm, forest and hill
Falkland Stewardship Trust relies on the goodwill, expertise and generosity of volunteers to help support much of our work. Whether you are interested in conservation, helping visitors, organising events or archiving we can offer a range of opportunities.
Monday & Friday conservation & gardening volunteers
Opportunities to work on a variety of woodlands stewardship tasks such as biodiversity work, pruning young hardwoods and rhododendron control. We are also working on a range of horticultural projects too. Our volunteer group gather at the Stables for 10am, finishing by 3pm and are led by our Woodland Ranger, Sam Docherty. Bring a packed lunch and something to drink and as activities are outside, best be prepared with wear warm clothes and waterproofs (if you don’t have waterproofs we can supply them). If you are interested in joining the group then please contact Sam by phone, 01337 858838 or email. Please note that you must be over 16 to volunteer.
If you like chatting to people and have a morning or afternoon to spare each week then we’d love to talk to you. The Information Hub at the front of the Stables is open 10am to 4pm each day. We offer advice to visitors (maps, history, activities) as well as serving refreshments and selling merchandising. If you are interested in being part of our volunteering team then please contact Helen by phone, 01337 858838 or email.
We have opportunities for companies to take part in corporate volunteering. If your team is looking for a chance to escape the office, put on some wellies and go deep in to the country then this is for you! Through our ‘Recovering a Lost Landscape’ project we are looking to tackle invasive Rhododendron ponticum which, if not treated, will suffocate native species and the habitats of our most precious wildlife including the red squirrel will be threatened. If your organisation is interested, please email Sam Docherty or call 01337 858838.
