We’re looking for a detail driven person to help input data into our online systems. This information will help grow our volunteering programme, and support our project and reserve teams to boost natures recovery.

Join our Volunteer Ranger Team at Greno Woods or Wyming Brook to help protect these amazing sites. Training and equipment provided. Minimum of 2 hours a week recommended. If you are interested in supporting another site, please get in touch.

Practical conservation days
We run monthly work days across our reserves. Perfect if you want some fresh air, to get closer to nature and help improve our green spaces. Tasks can include fence, wall and path repairs, invasive species and scrub control, habitat restoration, litter picking and wildlife gardening. Our volunteers are a friendly, supportive bunch and the Trust’s knowledgeable staff will be on site to welcome you, across Sheffield and Rotherham. We can also provide transport if needed, please just ask when you get in touch.
“Their hard work is what actually makes this nature reserve better.” Land Management Team Leader
“Great to be with a group of like minded volunteers, also interested in nature. People of all ages and from different backgrounds. Sharing knowledge and expertise.”
Support your local nature reserve
Interested in your local reserve? We run reserve User Forum walks and talks a couple of times a year, for you to find out more about how we manage the site, hear future plans, ask questions and give input. We would love to hear your thoughts.
Whether you’ve seen something common or rare, in one of our nature reserves or elsewhere in Sheffield and Rotherham, then we’d love to know. All species records are welcome.
“Volunteering for Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust brings many benefits to me, and it’s good to know that I’m giving something in return.”
