Volunteering in the National Park

We are currently reviewing our young volunteering programme to ensure all young people can access opportunities to volunteer across the National Park.  Please keep checking this page for any updates.  In the meantime, we are accepting applications to join our main Practical Conservation Volunteering Programme from young people aged 16-26 years old and we would love to hear from you!

Volunteering with us gives you the chance to:

  • Try something new. Doing something different always brings new experiences and sometimes you will find something you really love.
  • Connect with nature. Experience and learn about an abundance of wildlife and nature in the National Park while meeting new friends.
  • Get involved. Whatever you enjoy, there’s a wide range of activities, projects and tasks for you to get involved with.

Please don’t worry: we have plenty of outdoor weatherproof clothing you can borrow, just let us know what you need – getting muddy and wet is part of the fun!

Innvasive Non Native Species removal


Our Practical Conservation Volunteering Programme is open to everybody interested in looking after the National Park.  Activities run throughout the year and there are lots of opportunities to get involved!  Tasks include helping with wildlife surveys; helping maintain our path network; and removing invasive non-native species such as Rhododendron ponticum from our woodlands.

As well as helping our Rangers, our volunteers also support our partner organisations across the National Park.  These include the RSPB, National Trust for Scotland and the Woodland Trust.  You can visit some awesome places while helping with projects, lots of Instagram opportunities!

Transport is usually provided to the site from our headquarters in Balloch, or you can share transport with another volunteer, so you don’t need to be able to drive.  We cover travel expenses up to a maximum distance, and you can volunteer whenever suits you.  All opportunities are available to sign up to on a database, so it is easy to find something to suit your timetable with no pressure.

If you would like to get involved, you can register your interest and we will be in touch. For more information you can also get in touch with us through the channels below and we can answer any questions you may have.
